DONATE TODAY TO SUPPORT A GREAT CAUSE, AND DECIDE WHICH JERSEY I WILL WEAR

Hi everyone. My name is Jackson Canellis and I am running to raise money for BEDS Plus, an organization where I have been volunteering for the last four years.

BEDS Plus provides life-changing services to the homeless and those in need in the Southwest suburbs of Cook County.

On August 10th, during the crosstown classic, I will run 12 miles from Wrigley Field to Guaranteed Rate Field. And if you donate, you get to vote on which jersey I will wear during my run. Through your donation, you will not only get to show your support for your favorite Chicago baseball team, but you will help provide food, basic needs, and comfort to the 2,500 BEDS’ clients facing food insecurity and homelessness.

More About Me

I’m a junior at Carl Sandburg High School and run cross country and track. Since I started volunteering at BEDS, I have made and served over 750 lunches and meals.

My family and I are huge sports fans and the Crosstown Classic is one of our favorite sporting events. Running for this important cause that is near and dear to my heart, will make this year’s Crosstown Classic even more fun and meaningful.
