I had such a wonderful experience running the 2015 Pittsburgh Marathon, so I've decided to do it again in 2016! This time, I am fundraising for another cause that is very important to me: The YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh. I have been a member of the YMCA for several years and I have watched this organization have a positive impact on so many people, including myself. From witnessing people train for and complete challenging endurance events, to watching others reach impressive health and active lifestyle goals, I have really enjoyed being a part of the YMCA community. The YMCA has also helped me reach new goals. Before joining the YMCA, I really did not exercise. I started exercising regularly after joining the YMCA, and since then I've been able to complete events that I never thought I would do (such as running a marathon).
However, the YMCA is more than just a gym. The YMCA also has a very positive impact on our region. Did you know that the YMCA funds food pantries and congregate meals that have enabled access to food for over 6,000 individuals at no charge? Did you know that the YMCA also provides affordable housing to over 300 adults through residential housing facilities? These initiatives are just some of the many other programs offered by the YMCA to our greater community.
The YMCA would not be successful with these programs if they did not receive financial support. Therefore, I am asking you today to consider donating to the YMCA in support of my participation in the 2016 Pittsburgh Marathon. Your donation, regardless of the amount, will make a huge difference. Whether your donation is used to provide a meal, a house, or a safe place for children to play and grow, you can be assured that you are making a positive impact on our region. Thank you for your support!
