EVENT: DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon 2014

EVENT DATE: May 04, 2014

THE STORY:

Our Story

In March of 2011, Beverly's Birthdays founder, Megan Yunn "Megs", was volunteering at a local afterschool program and was helping a young girl named Beverly complete her homework. Beverly was asked to use the word "accustomed to" in a sentence. Trying to provide her with an example of how to use the word, Megs said "Beverly, at a birthday party people are accustomed to eating what?" Beverly responded, "I have never had a birthday party or a birthday cake."

At 12 years old Beverly had never had a birthday party of her own. Inspired by Beverly's story, Megs decided to start her own organization that provides birthday celebrations for homeless youth in the Pittsburgh Region. In June of 2011, Megs submitted her idea to the "BE BIG in Your Community Contest," a signature component of the ongoing Clifford The Big Red Dog® BE BIG!™ campaign sponsored by American Family Insurance and was selected as a first place winner out of over 1,000 entries in the nation. Beverly’s Birthdays received a starter grant to help make Megs dream a reality.

Beverly's Birthdays is now partnered with 10 shelters (and growing) serving over 400 homeless children living in the Pittsburgh Area.  Our goal for 2014 is to be able to say that we serve most, if not all, of the identified population of homeless youth in our city by throwing everyone an awesome birthday party and your donation supporting your runner is going to play a big role in that!

All donations raised through the Pittsburgh Marathon will go to support the mission of Beverly's Birthdays and spread cheer throughout the entire city, just like your runner will do in the marathon!

We can't THANK YOU enough for helping out!!
