I am running the 2018 Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon for a very personal reason. I've joined the American Cancer Society Charity Team because I need to raise funds to help fight this ugly disease!
My mother in law Paula was just diagnosed with glioblastoma brain cancer. The tumor is inoperable and she had her very first radiation treatment today. The opening day for marathon registration. What better day to join this team and get started. Please help me reach my goal or more!
This race is near and dear to my heart. It's my hometown. I have run for charity before and supported The Steel City Greyhounds. I've run on relay teams, I have run in honor of my US Veteran grandfather, and I have run to beat my own personal goals.
This coming year, help me fight to find a cure for my mother in law and so many others suffering from cancer. Any donation is so very appreciated!
