kyle daughterA Note from Kyle:

Thanks for helping me create opportunities for young girls! I’m running 50 marathons in the 50 states to raise $50,000 for Girls in the Game. For 19 years, Girls in the Game has provided programs and services for Girls age 7-18 in Chicagoland to develop themselves in sports, health, leadership, and life. As Emme’s father, I now take it more to heart that the gender-wage gap still exists (Women earn anywhere from 66 to 96 cents on the dollar to men, depending on occupation).

It is programs like Girls in the Game that will help young girls growing up today to bridge the gap! I anticipate the pursuit of 50 in 50 for 50 may take another 10 years to complete – so please consider making a 5-10 year donation now, or let me know that I may come back to you for support annually. Thank you all in advance – any amount helps!

Last Race: Ironman Wisconsin, 140.3 on 9/11/16. 17 races down, 33 to go!
