See what our charity coordinators have to say about the program
"The Run for a Reason program allows us to connect with a community that shares our vision of ending animal abuse, suffering, and homelessness. Our Paws over Pittsburgh team members become advocates for animals throughout the year and their fundraising efforts allow us to provide all aspects of care to abandoned, neglected, and injured animals while also educating communities about humane care and positive interactions with all animals, both domestic and wild. Their dedication to our cause pushes them to succeed not only in their training, but also in making a difference for all animals. We work as a team to offer innovative ways for our runners to fundraise and reach more people through awareness. Each step forward they take is a step toward the love and care our animals need and deserve. When you run for Humane Animal Rescue, you’ll be running for their rescue. We have raised $844,505 since 2010."
