Tara Runs Like the Wind

Tara Palmer was on Beaver Island in early June for a House Party to raise support for her up-coming Aids Marathon, which she will run in Chicago on October 1st.

The musical evening was held outside, and lasted until nearly dawn. Besides her talented family, Barry Pischner, Kevin White, Cindy Gillespie-Cushman, Jody and Stryder Crosswhite, Bill Markey, Danielle Cary, John McCafferty, and Cory Sowa helped keep the music flowing.

Tara has been training for this event since the snow left the Windy City. So far she's raised $1,200, which puts her at a third of her target amount; if she reaches it, she'll be eligible to run in the Dublin Marathon.

Contributions to this worthy cause should be in checks to the Aids Marathon and sent to the National Aids Marathon Program, 135 S. LaSalle Street, Dept 1506, Chicago 60674-1506. Include Tara's participant number, 0174, on the check.
