Mike Nowak is a SigEp from Eastern Illinois University who has pledged to run a marathon in every state to raise awareness about depression and suicide. We chronicled his story in an earlier article.
Just want to make everyone aware that we officially have a website now! Carla did a great job keeping it simple but not boring. We have a Paypal account setup for on-line donations, so start spreading the word! The feedback we have received in a few short hours has been very positive. The address is www.justamile.org
We’re heading to Madison on Saturday to run our second marathon of the year, so I will keep everyone posted on how it went.
I have a few ideas I’m working on for the organization, including a post race fundraiser at the St. Louis race. If our Southern Illinois/StL members have any suggestions on where to host the event let me know.
Love you all and talk to you soon!
