BENEFITING: DICK'S SPORTING GOODS FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: DICK'S SPORTING GOODS FOUNDATION
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
Welcome, All! :)
I have decided to run 13.1 miles for a cause this May to support school sports programs (woop, woop!).
Growing up, my school teams were much more than just an after school activity. I learned leadership skills, social skills, hardwork, the list could go on. I made some life long friendships, and learned some life long lessons.
With that being said, youth sports are in trouble - billions in funding have been cut from school sports programs in recent years, and 27% of U.S. public high schools could be without sports by 2020.
That's why the mission of the DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation is to support programs that inspire and enable participation in sports. Through their Sports Matter program, they are making a lasting impact in communities by giving young athletes the chance to play.
