In 2011, Team OLA was started to:
- Raise awareness of Mission of Our Lady of the Angels
- Offer up sacrifices of time, energy, and physical discomfort for the Mission and those it serves
- Raise funds for the Mission of Our Lady of the Angels
- Have fun!
Between 2011 and 2016, Team OLA sacrificed thousands of hours training for the Mission. The team has been able to raise $327,200 in the process! We are so grateful for all of Team OLA’s efforts.
Here are some reasons you should join the full and/or half marathon teams:
- Running Perks: GUARANTEED ENTRIES to the Chicago Marathon, T-shirts, training advice (if wanted), periodic motivational e-mails, pre race Mass & dinner, place to stay the night before the race, transportation to the starting line and from the finish line - and much more!
- Spiritual Perks: Each runner will be assigned an ANGEL/ PRAYER WARRIOR to specifically pray for their intentions during training and during the race.
- Easy fundraising: Sample letters and other fundraising information will be provided.
- Have a blast: Video summary of all Team OLA fun HERE.
