If you go into most running stores in the area, you are likely to see Mona's signs for "Share Your Soles," the charity Purdy started 13 years ago to provide shoes to people all over the world who need them. Purdy returned from Mexico where she delivered over 3000 pairs of shoes to the less fortunate to find that her apartment was completely destroyed by an electrical fire. Everything gone. It's time to give back to the lady who has given so much to Chicago and the world, and has never asked for anything for herself in return. Mona needs "everything," "I've become one of the people that I help, it's hard for me to ask for help, but right now I am homeless I have nothing, not even the basics." More than anything Mona needs money to survive, even the passport that has taken her around the world is destroyed. Mona is too proud to ask for your help, but we are not. Any donation you can make to help Mona will give to a woman who has given so much of herself. You can drop off gift cards or other donations at either Running Away Multisport location. Fill out the information below and every cent will go to help Mona get back back on her feet. It will look like you are registering for a race, but all the proceeds will go to Mona. Thank you.
