BENEFITING: The ALS Association Western Pennsylvania Chapter
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
Hi all! I am so excited to be running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon for Team ALS. This organization & cause means so much to me & is close to my heart.
I had one of the most amazing teachers in high school, Mr. French. Most kids took his Athletic First Aid class multiple years in a row just so they could have him as their teacher. I was lucky enough to take his class my junior & senior years. He believed in me especially when I didn't. He wrote me a recommendation letter to college. And he told all his students, "When in doubt, fire out." In 2009, he sadly passed away from ALS.
When I heard I could run the Pittsburgh Half for charity, it was a no brainer that I chose this one. It would mean so much to me for you to donate to this wonderful organization, no donation is too small.
Thank you again for your support!
