Judi Tschappat: “Where can you use me?”

Judi TschappatJudi ran the Chicago Marathon with Team World Vision in 2012. And although she wanted to run again the following season, a knee injury prevented her from signing up. That’s exactly when she approached her team captain and said, “I want to help with the team. Where can you use me?”

Judi became the group run volunteer coordinator and cheer team leader extraordinaire for the group run site in Algonquin, Illinois. Even now, three years later, Judi is still at the running site every Saturday at 6 AM with her two young girls, Maggie and Emma, cheering on her teammates.

Every person at that group run has been touched by having Judi and the girls out on the trail and the race course, leading cheer squads for when the going gets the toughest.

In her words: “All I really do is show up. God created me kinda ‘over the top’ with the gift of encouragement, so He simply put Team World Vision in front of me so He could use the gift He gave me.”

Thank you, Judi, for serving your team so selflessly.
