Matilda Says 'Go The Whole Hog'

Matilda says it great, "Never do anything by halves if you want to get away with it. Be outrageous. GO THE WHOLE HOG. Make sure everything you do is so completely crazy it's unbelievable..."

As for the JC - we're constantly inspired by the kids at Lurie Children's Hospital and strive to Matilda's message - Let's be outrageous with our fundraising efforts. What we put into it is what we'll get out so with the kids in mind, GO THE WHOLE HOG!

Move for the Kids!

If you haven't already signed up, join the Junior Council's 2013 Move for the Kids team! The 5k Run/ Walk benefits the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. You can sign up to participate in the race or register as a virtual runner and help raise money without participating in the actual race. To sign up, follow this link:

Don't feel comfortable asking your friends to donate a bunch of money? We recommend posting on your Facebook or sending out an email asking for everyone to donate $5. It's a small amount that everyone can afford and it adds up quickly!

We hope to see you all at the race on Sunday!
