THE STORY:

On May 1, 2016, I'll be running the Pittsburgh Marathon as a team member with the Steel City Greyhounds.  This dedicated, non-profit organization works tirelessly to find loving homes for racing greyhounds after they no longer compete.  Many of the hounds come from the Mardi Gras track in Cross Lanes WV.  Will you help me reach my goal of raising $500 to insure a long life for these lovable hounds?  Even a small donation will help make a big difference.

STEEL CITY GREYHOUNDS INC wrote -

Steel City Greyhounds (SCG) is a nonprofit corporation that promotes the adoption of retired racing greyhounds in the metropolitan Pittsburgh and surrounding western Pennsylvania regions.

We are an all-volunteer organization which means that 100% of the proceeds raised by the SCG Marathon Team goes to the organization's adoption program. The proceeds cover the costs associated with greyhound medical expenses, including spay and neuter surgery, vaccinations, and wellness exams, along with other adoption program operating costs.

Our goal is to raise money to help retired racers find forever homes. Greyhounds begin their lives like no other breed, destined to be raised in the racing environment. They are very competitive athletes, yet gentle and sensitive by nature, making them perfect canine companions.

By running or donating you help these 45 MPH couch potatoes move from the kennel to a couch!
