Let's meet Alex!
Chacon is the President of Bishop Mora Salesian High School in Los Angeles.
Here are few fun facts about him and why he is excited to run for CEF! Alex has
not been running much lately but has participated in a few 5Ks in the past.
Alex ran cross country as a high schooler at Salesian and he’s gotten the
chance to watch his wife run the LA Marathon for the last 10 years. “I'm hoping
some of her training will rub off on me.” Alex’s fondest CEF memory actually
happens every year. “[I go through it every year] when we see families arrive
on campus each Fall, with CEF award letters in hand and big smiles. I imagine
it was the same reaction my parents had when I was a CEF student at Salesian.”
CEF asked how Alex will be training for the L.A. Marathon and he says, “I'll be
gradually building up my mileage base and working steadily on my mental focus.
I don't want to get injured, so I'll be keeping a running journal to see what
is working and what is not. I'll be using a few wearables to track my
conditioning along the way, so it'll be a good experiment. I'll also be
shedding lots of weight (and tears) during the holiday season as I'll need to
take a pass on the tamales and focus on my diet quite a bit. Thanks a lot CEF.”
Alex’s favorite movie is McFarland USA, where Salesian is actually mentioned in
the movie! Lastly, we asked Alex why he chose to run for CEF, and he
enthusiastically responded, “I think more people in Los Angeles should know
about the great work of the Catholic Education Foundation. If my
participation helps to increase awareness of the tremendous gift of Catholic
education and how CEF makes it a reality, then running 26.2 miles is the least
I can do!”
