Team CCO member, Isaiah Roberts ran this year’s Bank of America Chicago Marathon on behalf of CCO. Here’s what he had to say about his motivation for going 26.2 miles.
“CCO is a non-profit that works to help the homeless community in Uptown, Chicago. CCO offers meals (236,600 just last year alone), temporary shelter, food bags. Their services go far beyond that. ‘Finding home’ is part of their mission statement, and they work to offer REAL solutions to get people off the streets and permanently housed. Their caseworkers help them find essential documents, such as birth certificates, social security cards. They help shelter residents find employment, and even provide them with transit passes so they can GET to their job. Last year alone, CCO moved over 220+ into PERMANENT housing.”
