Hello and Welcome to my Fundraising Page!
I am very excited to be able to run the Pittsburgh City Half-Marathon for Open Hand Ministries this Spring. Running a marathon has always been my dream, and when I heard of this opportunity to raise money for such a worthwhile cause, I couldn't let it pass. Unfortunately, a few weeks ago I injured myself and so had to drop down to the half-marathon. "Open Hand Ministries promotes justice in the inner city neighbourhoods of Garfield and East Liberty by providing families with the opportunity for homeownership."
I have worked on several of Open Hand's projects, so I know in what an amazing way this money will be used to help the poorer neighbourhoods of our city. Amazingly, I already hit my first goal of $1000 with 94 days to go, which is why my new goal is to raise $2000! There are still two weeks to go!!!
I am currently mid-way through my finals for my second semester of studying civil engineering at the University of Pittsburgh, so I love the hands on experience that Open Hands offers me.
Thanks a lot for your support,
