THE STORY:

This will be my second 1/2 marathon I will be running for Children's Hospital of PGH (Cleft-Craniofacial Center).  I am running again for my daughter, Ellie. Since the marathon last year, Ellie had her submucous cleft palate surgery at CHP.  We could not have been more thankful and blessed to have CHP and the Cleft Team. Ellie doesn't know what her pediatricians name is but she knows what her surgerons name is..... she absolutely loves Dr. Davit.  He was beyond amazing.  Same for the nurses, healthcare workers, Attending Drs, Dietary Dept, Anesth Dept, etc....  We are lucky to have CHP so close to home.  Ellie's surgery and recovery went extremely well bc of the Children's Hospital Team.  From the time she entered the door until she left, they made it their mission to keep her happy, busy, comfortable, safe and fun.  They accomplished all of those (see pictures with arrow).   None of that would be possible without donations and support from the community.  Please help me give back to Children's for all the wonderful things they do on a daily basis for every child.  Last year, I set my goal at $500 and hit almost $750.  I am going to aim for $1000.00 this year.

Thanks for your consideration and support.
