EVENT: 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2018
Thank you to all my family, friends and coworkers who helped me raise over $1000 for Steel City Greyhounds last year!!
I had so much fun running, fundraising and meeting new friends at SCG (2- and 4-legged!) while training for my first Half Marathon last year that I've decided to train for the Full Marathon this year!
Mabel and Madeline - our pair of rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds - will be snuggled up at home staying warm while us runners are braving all sorts of conditions to train. But knowing that I am running to raise money and awareness for Steel City Greyhounds makes every step more meaningful.
These Greyhounds are amazing dogs and I am proud to support them again this year. I can't wait to see our amazing SCG cheer group at Mile 18!!
More about Steel City Greyhounds...
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!
