a little whimsie hair ties in support of Children's Hospital Foundation!
February 18, 2016
BENEFITING: Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation
ORGANIZER: Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
On Sunday, May 1, 2016 I will run in my 6th DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon event! Previously I have particiapted in the Relay, this time, I'm pushing myself and going for the Half Marathon. To some, it's an easy task, to others, it's an impossible task. To me, well, a bit of both. Training to run 13 miles is no easy feat when you have 4 small children and work full time, but see, I have the ability to run. I'm healthy. I can run, so I run. The Pittsburgh Marathon has become a family affair. My husband and children have always supported me, but now, they run with me and participate in the Marathon weekend events.
And I'm running for a great reason---in support of The Ann Thompson Fund for Critical Care, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
On a daily basis I see the struggles that families go through at CHP, and I see how dedicated the physicians, nurses, and medical team are to helping and healing these children. That's why I'm running for CHP. All of the money that I raise will directly support CHP through the Ann Thompson fund.
I know that money is tight for everyone, but if you have a few extra dollars, I would appreciate your support!
