ORGANIZER: Urban Impact
EVENT: 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2018
This is a picture of the class I teach on Thursday Nights! They are an entergetic and fanstasic group of kids. I volunteer my time and invest in these childrens lives. I hope and pray that expericances like this show them God's love and help shape who they become in the future. It is programs like this that help fill the gaps for children and parents. It truly takes a villiage. I often feel like the program ministers to me more than the students. It makes me a stronger and better person. I'm a teacher by day and sometimes get discourdged. Urban Impact reminds me WHY I teach and helps give me the strenth to keep going. I hope that you will consider joining me in supporting Urban Impact. Their programming truly makes a difference in children's lives!! This will be my first time running for Urban Impact and I hope that I can make them proud!!
Urban Impact invests in the lives of youth to become leaders who in turn invest in the next generation.
Urban Impact, a Christian community development organization on Pittsburgh's North Side since 1995, desires is to see lives holistically tranformed, one person, one family, one block at a time, offering programs in the Arts, Education, Athletics, and Options. Last fiscal year, with the help of 400 volunteers, Urban Impact reached 1,750 youth, served 32,300 meals, retained between 700 and 900 core students and saw all enrolled Options students graduate from high school!
