BENEFITING: The ALS Association Western Pennsylvania Chapter
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
Hi, thank you for checking out my page. I have been working with the ALS Association Western Pennsylvania Chapter for five years. Following Rebecca Renshaw's vision we were able to get the chapter into the marathon as an official charity in the Run for a Reason program 3 years ago. In just those 3 short years we grew our team from 15 runners to 65 runners!!! I am incredibly proud of this event and am proud to personally #ChallengeALS in my very first half marathon.
Naturally I feel that I am not a runner, but how can I say that when I am completely healthy and am able to run. If I had ALS I might not be able to do this. So yea, the training was tough but I am happy to do anything I can to bring awareness to ALS and raise money in the process. Please donate and help me reach my goal! Also.. if I get to $1000 I get into the $1000 Club which offers access to free massages after the race. Your generousity is appreciated. :)
