The Story

EVENT DATE: Oct 18, 2014

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Nov 01, 2014

A 13 mile, city-wide, pilgrimage to support The Pittsburgh Promise and Pittsburgh’s kids. We are walking because many of our city’s children are suffering serious educational inequality. We believe that together we must link elbows around all of our kids to ensure that their lives, which are full of promise, are also full of opportunity.All proceeds from the walk will benefit The Pittsburgh Promise which safeguards that opportunity by providing college scholarships.  

Oxford Development issued a $10,000 Challenge to the walk. Help us raise $10,000 and we will unlock this incredibly generous gift! 

All are also welcome and encouraged to join us on October 18th at the finish line of the walk, for a free celebration and cookout at Sci -Tech in Oakland around 1:30pm!

Walk details: The walk will be begin at Sci Tech in Oakland at 8:00AM and will finish back at Sci Tech as well. Snacks/drinks, bathroom breaks, and shuttles, will be provided for the walkers. We will celebrate at the Finish Line of the walk with a cookout at Sci Tech from 1:30pm - 4:30pm.  You can check out the route for the day here:
