EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
Thank you for your support for a great cause. I am running my first half marathon and chose to run to benefit The Miracle League of Sourh Hills. Last year, I had the honor of having a student that played his dream sport because of this amazing organization. Everyday this young boy inspired and amazed me with his determination, tenacity, and ability to dream BIG. On the playground he was always were the action was playing soccer or shooting hoops. He never complained and keep on powering through, even though walking, at times, was tiring due to having CP. My Aunt Louise also had severe CP, and she would have loved to have a facility like the Miracle League. This run is in honor of Danny and other children who just want to play ball.

During the 2016 Pittsburgh Marathon weekend, April 30th and May 1st, 2016, the Miracle League of the South Hills Marathon team will rally together and run. We will run inspired by the obstacles our friends, families, and Miracle League players have overcome. We will run for those who have not been afforded the same privilege. We will run because we believe in baseball and a place to play.
Over 300+ individuals play for the Miracle League of the South Hills, a baseball program designed for children who have special needs. Now, we need you to join our team. Whether you’re a seasoned runner or someone who has been inspired by the determination of our players, we invite you to run for a reason.
Our mission is simple. We believe every child deserves the opportunity to play. By running in the kids marathon, 5k, relay, half marathon, or marathon, you are helping us to achieve our mission and build an accessible playground at our facility!
