School Children Strive4more

A group of 3rd-6th graders at a north Chicago school have committed to Strive4more! They will be jogging 1.6 miles each school day for 19 days. They have found friends and family to sponsor each mile of their run. The kids have raised money for CCO but more importantly, they have raised community awareness about homelessness in Chicago. Thanks kids! Keep up the great work!
