BENEFITING: PIRATES CHARITIES
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
For the 1st time, I actually ran in a marathon after being a spectator my entire life in Boston! It was so exciting participating in the half marathon in Pittsburgh on Sunday, May 1st. In lieu of a registration fee, I opted to join Andrew McCutchen's team to raise funds for organizations that mean a great deal to me in this area. Many of which I already donate tiem or money to.
All proceeds benefit Pirates Charities and will be dispersed by Andrew McCutchen into community programs in the Western PA region. Organizations that benefited from last year's team were Light of Life Mission, Washington Mission, Homeless Children's Education Fund, Habitat for Humanity, Make-A-Wish, and Children's Hospital.
