EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
Hi dearest friends and family!
After my first half marathon that I ran in Brooklyn for St Jude's this past October I not only felt stronger as a runner but I felt a bigger purpose as an individual based on my $1,000+ contribution to St. Jude Children's Hospital. (THANKS TO YOU!)
My next mission to give back to the local community of my beloved Pittsburgh and improve my lifestyle while I reach that goal...I am running my second half marathon in Pittsburgh on May 7, 2017 and I will be raising money to support 412 FOOD RESCUE INC http://412foodrescue.org/
I would truly appreciate any donation you can give me to help me reach my goal (even $1 is appreciated).
Thanks very much!

Here is a little bit about 412 FOOD RESCUE INC:
- We throw away a third of the food we produce. Meanwhile, 1 in 7 goes hungry. And for families with children and female-headed households, many more experience hunger.
- 412 Food Rescue's mission is to prevent viable food from entering the waste stream. We rescue food from retailers that are healthy and fresh, but unsellable and deliver it where it can help fill the gap experienced by so many of our neighbors.
- Our corps of #foodrescueheroes give their time and resources to transport food between our donors and nonprofit partners. From March 2015 to July 2016, we have rescued over 625,000 pounds of healthy food from going to landfills to feeding those who are hungry.
