BENEFITING: Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank
ORGANIZER: Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank
EVENT: 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2018
In 2006-07, I ran nine charity races to qualify for the NYC Marathon. Unfortunately during my last traning run, I tore my patella tendon and had to withdraw.
It has been over a decade and the dream to run a marathon has not subsided. So, with support from you, I'm registered to run for the 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon.
My goal is simple: to provide as many meals as possible for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, a member of Feeding America, is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1980 that distributes more than 31 million meals annually throughout a network of nearly 400 member agencies across 11 counties in southwestern Pennsylvania.
Their mission is to feed people in need and mobilize our community to eliminate hunger. My values align with theirs, as hunger and food insecurity continues to be a issue for the most vulnerable in our society.
I am confident that with your support, I will exceed each monthly fundraising goal to help families in need while having fun in the process! Whether it's $5, $10, $26 (one dollar per mile), $50, $100, etc. know that every $1 raised provides enough food for five meals.
Help me become the greatest Food Bank Hero ever. Thank you in advance for your support.
