BENEFITING: Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation
ORGANIZER: Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation
EVENT: 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2018
In 2014, I was diagnosed with a heart problem and was told that I would not be able to live an active lifestyle. I decided that I would fight it, though, and began running. A little over three years later, I ran my first marathon.
This spring, I plan to run my second marathon in support of the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. Every week for the past three years, I have volunteered at the Children's Hospital, and it has been the most meaningful experience I've had while in college. Seeing those kids fight every obstacle life throws at them has given me the courage I needed to keep running when my heart and legs were ready to quit. So, I am running the 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon for those same kids. I run for all the kids who can't. Please donate even $10 to help me cheer on those kids and give them a little more support as they fight their battles!
