I am running the Chicago Marathon on October 7th in memory of my dear friend, John Geary and his nephew Matthew Weber. I decided again to run in honor of John and the Special Olympics because I know John believed in giving back to those in need. John's nephew Matthew Weber, is one of those many children that the Special Olympics program supports.
I know that all of you receive many emails and letters asking you to give to special causes and charities. If you can not give then please leave a message for John's family on my web page to honor his memory.
