Mercy Home Hero Quotes

2015 Chicago marathon for Mercy Home on Sunday Oct 11, 2015. @Charles Cherney Photography

“As a Youth Care Worker at Mercy Home, I run marathons every day with the boys I work with. From hours of Uno-playing, to extended dance parties, to many long nights full of woundedness and healing. Running the Chicago Marathon with the Mercy Home Heroes was more than just another race. It gave me a community of supporters, a city of cheerleaders, and a mantra in my head of all these boys’ names, motivating me to run harder with every mile.”

“I joined Mercy Home Heroes to give every Child a Chance, in particular to the children of Chicago who all deserve an opportunity to maximize their potential to our communities. My experience with the Hero’s team was GREAT. The support from Mercy Home is never ending, from the help fundraising to the massages after the marathon. It was an absolute honor to run for all these children and all those who support this great cause. If you are contemplating the Marathon, there is no better Charity to run for than Mercy Home. They shower you with support and the marathon becomes a Life Experience to cherish forever.”

– Mitch Alvarez , Mercy Home Hero

“Running 26.2 miles is a huge accomplishment. That said, running the Chicago marathon as a Mercy Home Hero gave me the opportunity to be charitable while training. And, to be honest, raising money to help provide at-risk children in Chicago a chance at a better future, along with pushing myself past my own physical limitations, makes running the Chicago marathon on behalf of Mercy Home that much more rewarding. Every step of the way, the Mercy Home Heroes team supported, cheered for, and offered great resources during my journey – and I’ll be forever grateful for making the entire experience so memorable.”

– Liz Le, Mercy Home Hero
