EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
Thank You for visiting my fundraising page! I have participated in the Pittsburgh Marathon weekend since 2013 and this year I thought that I would run for a reason and have decided to run with The ALS Association of Western Pennsylvania. The ALSA is a not-for-profit that assist those living with ALS and their families by providing research, patient services, education and advocacy to the local community. If you can please help me try and raise money to help this wonderful organization.
The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS. ALSA covers all the bases — research, patient and community services, public education, and advocacy — in providing help and hope to those facing the disease.
The ALS Association National Office and the Western Pennsylvania Chapter operates under a shared mission: To lead the fight to cure and treat ALS through global, cutting-edge research, and to empower people with Lou Gehrig’s Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support.
