Welcome to the American Red Cross’s Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon fundraising page! The Red Cross is dedicated to helping prevent, prepare for, and alleviate the repercussions of disasters. While we are getting better every year, disasters are an unavoidable part of life and we can always use more help. In fact our organization is driven by the good will of every day volunteers and donors who give their time and money to help their neighbors. We would be honored to have you as a part of our team! Team members can participate in any of the races offered, that being said you don’t have to run at all to join the team and help raise money for our cause. As a part of the team we will hold training events, fundraisers, and even give out prizes intermittently throughout the year.
Our hope is that every team member can raise a minimum of $250 to help us achieve our overall fundraising goal of $7,500.
Here are some ways your money can help us achieve our mission:
$22 provides Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner for one person in a time of disaster.
$50 covers the cost to provide a parent with diapers, wipes, and soy formula for an infant.
$200 provides a full day of food and shelter for a family of 4.
$550 provides financial assistance for a family impacted by a local disaster, like a home fire.
$1000 provides food and shelter to 5 families for 1 day.
