THE STORY:

Join Team GLSEN Pittsburgh for Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon 2015!

Are you interested in helping to make schools safer for LGBT students? If you are considering running the full marathon, half marathon, 5K, marathon relay or children's fun run, please join Team GLSEN Pittsbugh in helping to raise money in support of safer schools for LGBT students. Whether you are a beginner, advanced runner, or somewhere in between, we are recruiting participants to join our team for the Pittsburgh Marathon.

For Team GLSEN Pittsburgh, this is much more than a race. Each of our runners also raises money on behalf of GLSEN Pittsburgh in providing critical support of our work to create a safe learning environment for local LGBT students. With each mile and hour you train, you'll be helping to make our schools safer and more equal.

As participants, our goal is to raise $12,000 to support GLSEN Pittsburgh programs (e.g. GLSEN Pittsburgh Pride Prom, Day of Silence). Benefits for participation include:

  • Free registration for single runners who raise over $500
  • Free registration for teams who raise over $1,000
  • Raise awareness for an important cause, making each mile more meaningful
  • The satisfaction of modeling a healthy and positive outlook toward exercise for LGBT students
  • Organized outings and training runs with a supportive community
  • A GLSEN Pittsburgh T-shirt
  • An invitation to join Team GLSEN Pittsburgh at the after-Marathon party

Come join Team GLSEN Pittsburgh in this year's Pittsburgh Marathon. Click the Run for Charity button on this page to begin! If you are donating funds for a particular runner, please click the Donate to this Fundraiser button.
