LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon

October 22, 2006

Special thanks to everyone who supported Rise Above It Vice President, Shawn Fox, in the 2006 LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon. Unfortunately Shawn was unable to finish the race. During the extensive marathon training, Shawn developed two stress fractures in his foot. Against doctors orders, Shawn decided to run in the race and wound up breaking a bone his foot early on during the race. A combination of his stubbornness and conviction to make RAI supporters proud led to four weeks of wearing a boot – those of you who know Shawn know that he did it will a sense of humor and a smile on his face.

Shawn thoroughly enjoys running and has already signed up for the San Diego Marathon. RAI will just carry over everyone’s generosity to this event and will keep you updated on Shawn’s training progress and hopefully more positive race results.

Thanks again and please wish Shawn good health in his next training schedule.
