Team CCO 2013, Paddy is pictured in the center with a white cap.

Do you know anyone who has run 9 marathons in 9 days? We do! Long-time Cornerstone Community Outreach (CCO) supporter Patrick McCormack, has been running for over 17 years. He turned that love for the long road into an amazing CCO fund-raiser in 2010. That year Paddy began his journey on the steps of CCO. It continued through Chicago, along the Illinois & Michigan Canal, past miles of cornfields and finally ending in Central Illinois. There he was cheered across the finish line by friends and family!
Paddy’s radical fundraising endeavor turned into Team CCO. This year, over 30 fabulous runners are registered to run the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on behalf of CCO’s shelter guests.
