EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
I want to give back to a park that has given me so much! I have loved running at North Park since I discovered it shortly after moving to Pittsburgh. One of our favorite things to do on the weekend is run the loop and enjoy a lunch overlooking the lake at Over the Bar. I hope this fundraiser helps to leave it and other Allegheny County Parks better than I found them.
This is also in the spirit of my father, who used to donate to similar causes such as "Rails-to-Trails." And as an avid bird-watcher, he would have enjoyed learning about the Chimney Swift Habitat Towers project.
