My Dream

Joe Wangendo

I discovered running to restart my life 10 years ago and I have been running since. Running gave me a sense of purpose and changed my life forever. I have completed three 42K marathons, several half marathons and numerous 5K. My dream has always been to to bring together my love for running and my love for charity. This year my dream comes true on October 13 when I take on the Chicago Marathon to raise money for a mobile blood center.

This will be my 2nd Chicago Marathon having completed the course in 2011. Others include 2 finishes Standard Chartered Nairobi Marathon (2006/08), 8th overall (2nd place age group) National Blood Foundation Run 2010, Baltimore, USA, 7th overall (winner age group) National Blood Foundation Run 2011, San Diego, USA.
