The Holy Cross/IHM Parish Immigration Committee is proud to announce that the 2014 “Dreamers and Allies Run” Scholarship is now available!

Thanks to the sacrifice of the 13 runners who ran the 2013 Chicago Marathon and the amazing generosity of our mile sponsors, we will be able to offer scholarships to both undocumented college students from the Back of the Yards and undocumented college students who have committed themselves to serve and improve the Back of the Yards.

The “Dreamers and Allies Run” scholarship is coordinated and organized by the Holy Cross/Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish Immigration Committee. The mission of the Immigration Committee is to advocate on behalf of, educate, serve, and accompany our immigrant families. For nearly six years, we have worked to empower, support, and protect the dignity of our undocumented brothers and sisters. The “Dreamers and Allies Run” Scholarship is yet another way to empower our community.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the Second Annual “Dreamers and Allies Run” effort was a tremendous success!
