    Chicago Marathon

    2016 CHICAGO MARATHON

    If you’re running the Chicago Marathon you have the opportunity to multiply the impact of each stride by running with GRIP Outreach For Youth! With every step you take & every dollar you raise, you can help us do the important work of breaking the fatherless cycle.

    Here are some ways you can be a part of Team GRIP and break the cycle of fatherlessness:

    1) Run With GRIP! That’s right, we want you to put on your running shoes and train to run the race you’ve always wanted to run – The Chicago Marathon. We’re putting together the GRIP Runners Club, an amazing team that will train together and spur one another on to 26.2 miles! We’ve got a training schedule for you to follow, long runs that we’d like you to join us on, and so much more. What are you waiting for? Join the GRIP Runners Club!

    2) Support a runner. Ok, so you’ve decided not to run with the GRIP Runners Club and we understand that. Running 26.2 miles isn’t a goal that everyone wants to achieve. Let’s face it, running a marathon is right up there with bucket-list items like wrestling an alligator or climbing Mount Everest. But, you can still be a part of the club! As runners sign up with the GRIP Runners Club, profiles will be listed on our site and you can sponsor those individuals. Feel free to check in weekly to see what new runners we have! See the runners below, and click to give to them.

    3) Make a general donation. If you’re not sure which runner to support, because they are all so amazing.

    WHEN

    Sunday, October 9th, 8:00am

    WHERE

    5101 W. Harrison St.
    Chicago, IL

    SUPPORT OUR RUNNERS

    GIVE NOW

    If you’d like to support a runner, you can help us reach their goal by giving a donation of any size. Just click the the name of the runner you’d like to support, and then enter an amount to give.

    As a 25 year old who grew up fatherless on the South Side of Chicago, Luther joined a gang at a young age. His family was convinced he was going to end up in prison, or even worse–dead.

    Luther & Ross (1 of 2)

    Luther

    One night I got beat up real bad and ended up in the hospital.” – Luther

    Luther knew that God was giving him a second chance after he recovered from being in a coma for 8-months. Shortly after his recovery, he began to follow Jesus, but there was only one problem–he couldn’t comprehend Scripture. Like many of our youth at GRIP, he struggles with reading comprehension. “I knew that I needed to read the Word [of God] but I ran away from the Word because I couldn’t comprehend it,” Luther says.

    Not long after Luther began following Jesus, he met Ross–a GRIP volunteer–and was introduced to Streetlights. “It was like a hunger for the Word of God became evident in his life, and now he’s listening to Streetlights all the time,” says Ross.

    Luther and Ross studying Scripture through Streetlights

    Luther found himself fully engaged in Streetlights, pausing and reflecting, writing notes, and discussing with Ross along the way, which has led to a deep Life-on-Life relationship. “My role [with Luther] has been ‘together let’s get to know God,’” Ross remarks.

    “Never in my life have I felt more consistently like God is talking to me as I do when I’m listening to Streetlights,” Luther shares.

    Luther and Ross are just two Streetlights users among thousands who are anxiously awaiting more books to be recorded and made available. Currently 14 of 27 books of the New Testament are available for free. GRIP’s goal is to complete the entire New Testament by the end of 2016, but we need your prayer and financial support. You can give to Streetlights by clicking here and type “Streetlights” in the note line.
