BENEFITING: The ALS Association Western Pennsylvania Chapter
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
The ALS Western Pennsylvania Chapter has been involved with the Pittsburgh Marathon since 2014. This year teh Western PA ALS Association is a Silver Level Charity Sponsor. Our goal is to raise $20,000 that will be used for patient care and services in the 31 counties we serve.
I chose to #runforareason in memory of my aunt, Sharon "Gaga" Topley. She was like a big sister, a mom with no rules, she was caring and supportive, and she was always the biggest fan of her nieces and nephews. She loved her family unconditionally and always made sure her friends knew she loved them like family, too. Gaga taught me to appreciate the little things in life, like diamonds, and rubies, and anything that sparkled just the right way in the perfect light.
Running 13.1 miles is not even close to comparing the challenges faced by those with ALS, but it's just one way we can work together to find a cure for those we love.
