BENEFITING: American Heart Association
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
Two summers ago I ran my first half marathon, and after a long break from running, I've decided to challenge myself to another race! This time, I will be raising money for the American Heart Association, and running on behalf of my Uncle T, who passed away a year ago from severe cardiovascular disease. I'll be thinking of him every step of the way - through my 12 weeks of training, and during my 13.1 mile race on May 7th.
Uncle T was one of the biggest cheerleaders throughout my life, and every member of my family's life, so I know he'll be cheering me on throughout this journey! I'm honored to run for him, and everyone who has also been affected by this.
Please consider donating and helping me reach my goal of $500!!
