BENEFITING: The Pittsburgh Promise

EVENT DATE: Aug 07, 2015

THE STORY:

Thanks for visiting my donation page.  I appreciate your interest in helping me to raise money for a great charity, The Pittsburgh Promise.  The mission of The Pittsburgh Promise is to make sure that any student in a Pittsburgh inner city school, who successfully obtains a high school degree, has the financial support to go on to college.

I would never ask for a donation without putting some effort into the task myself.  As many of you know, I run some crazy races but this one just may be a bit over the top.  This time I am attempting the Bigfoot 200 miler.  Bigfoot 200 is a pretty rugged trail race through the Cascade Mountains in Washington State.  It is a continuous race with very limited support.  My plan is to start Friday morning 8/7 and finish sometime before the 109 hour official cutoff time.  (Or have my crew drag the remains off the mountain.)  It will be an adventure and a challenge.

The Pittsburgh Promise is really a great organization but if that is not enough to justify your donation, you can also consider it as a way of encouraging me to inflict great bodily pain upon myself.  Whether you have a kind heart for these kids or you just like the sadistic nature of encouraging me to inflict pain upon myself doesn’t matter to me, your contribution is appreciated either way.
