Hear from our Heroes

Being a Mercy Home Hero is a life-changing experience – for our Heroes and for the youth here at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls. Here are just a few of the things our runners are saying about their unforgettable experience.

“100% worth it; 100% worth the pain :)”

“Running for Mercy Home was the best possible experience and it made running the Chicago Marathon memorable.”

“You guys were awesome! I can’t say enough about how happy I was/am to be a part of the Mercy Home team. From everything before and after the race. All around an awesome bunch of people. Katie, thanks for everything. I will definitely see you guys next year.”

“It’s such a joy to be part of the mission and passion of Mercy Home. You’ll certainly feel connected if you attend all of the events offered. It is such an energetic team and the marathon day perks are as enjoyable they are supportive!”

“Great organization – first class all the way!!”

“This was an experience I will never forget. I would never have been able to reach the finish line if it wasn’t for the overwhelming support of the Mercy Home Hero’s Team. I am looking forward to a long lasting relationship with the Mercy Homes! I hope to be involved in a volunteer capacity as well as continue to be a Mercy Home hero. I hope to bring Mercy Homes to the attention of my friends and family and employer and do some additional fundraising efforts outside the Marathon team. Thank you again for a spectacular time and for all of your support!”

“Everything was wonderful. I can’t wait for staying involved in the future.”

“From signing up to be a Hero to completing the marathon, I felt very well supported. Thanks for the great experience!”

“Great support and perks of being on the Mercy Home Hero team. Well done, it was such an awesome day!!!”

“This was a great experience! I felt very connected to the Mercy Home team, even though I trained in a different state.”
