THE STORY:

The Pittsburgh Half Marathon is taking place on May 4th, 2014. My goal this year is to raise $2500.00 for the Children's Hospital. My beautiful niece, Brielle, has had treatment at the facility as well as at the rehabilitation center. I am running this race for Brielle as well as all children faced with different circumstances that require the expertise of the incredible staff at Children's.

Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation wrote -

The mission of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is to improve the health and well-being of all children through excellence in patient care, teaching and research.

The hospital serves a region of more than 5.3 million people, including urban, suburban and rural areas. Its centers of excellence draw patients from all over the world. Patients range primarily from birth to 18 years, and 41 percent are eligible for Medical Assistance. Children’s is the only pediatric hospital in a radius of 130 miles and has come to be solely responsible for the region’s general and subspecialty pediatric hospital care, a majority of the ambulatory subspecialty care, and a significant portion of the primary care, through its 33 affiliated suburban and rural private practice locations.

In its most recent fiscal year, patient care volume was more than 19,000 admissions and observations; 77,000 emergency visits; 22,000 surgeries; and 673,000 outpatient visits. The hospital provided $62 million in free and uncompensated care to children of the region in need.

Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation is the sole fund-raising arm of the hospital. The Foundation exists to provide financial support for the hospital’s mission. The funds raised help the hospital to seed research and maintain the momentum of discoveries; to supplement government funds for training the next generation of pediatricians; and to serve all the region’s children, even when their families cannot afford care. In Fiscal Year 2013, the Foundation provided $38 million in support to the hospital and gave more than 19,000 donors the opportunity to have an impact on the health of children locally and worldwide. Established in 2000, the Foundation manages assets totaling $217 million. The current staff complement is 30 fund-raisers and support staff. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, and it is a public charity under sections 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.
