A Day To Remember … Forever

By: Kevin Velpel


There are those days that you will never forget…buying your 1st car, the first time you had…well you know, your wedding day, the birth of your children, and very select other days. Personally, I was fortunate enough to experience one of those unforgettable days yesterday thanks to A Safe Haven in Chicago. A Safe Haven is a foundation that helps people aspire, transform and sustain their lives as they transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency with pride and purpose.

Yesterday, A Safe Haven hosted the nation’s largest 5K run to end homelessness and Chicago’s largest veteran Stand Down. When I signed up to volunteer for this event last week, I knew that what I was doing was for a great cause. However, what I did not know was that I would be taking my 12 year old daughter with me to help volunteer, and that would change everything for me.
