Marathon Fund raising

There are many worthy causes to support.  Now that I have completed my 20 mile training run in pretty good shape, I have decided for my 7th and final marathon to fund raise for the Public Interest Law Society (PILS) at Loyola University Chicago School of Law.  One of the many things I like about Loyola is its devotion to the public interest and its ability to attract students who feel the same way.  PILS supports those students through programming during the school year and more importantly with summer grants to students who work in otherwise unpaid summer internships in public interest and public sector organizations.  If you are able to support PILS and my final marathon run through the streets of Chicago please consider a gift of any amount to PILS. 

The easiest way is to go to and select Public Interest Law Society on the drop down box marked direct your gift.  You can also send me a check made out to Loyola University Chicago School of Law with PILS marked in the notes section. 

Either way I am grateful for your support of this worthy cause and intend to match to at least the first $500.  In addition, I intend to steal the wonderful idea of Brother Matt and offer the additional incentive for every gift of $25 or more, I will add the song of your choice to my play list for race day.

  1. Done. Song yet to be selected, however. Tempted by Europe's Final Countdown, but I only know the titular lyric.
