BENEFITING: MARIO LEMIEUX FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: MARIO LEMIEUX FOUNDATION
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
This is my 3rd year running for the Mario Lemieux Foundation. This will be my FIRST FULL!! Marathon. Definitely nervous.
I run for this charity for 2 reason: 1) Love the PENS and Mario, was my favorite sports player growing up (yes even in Ohio). 2) Something I can feel I can do for my mom, who died of cancer Feb 2007. I have dedicated every race in Pitt to her and will continue to do so as long as I'm able to run. Also this charity creates playrooms for children and I have had a nephew (now 18) who was born with a cancerous tumor in his throat and is now cancer free. He spent a lot of his childhood in the hospital.
Any and ALL Support is apprecited. GO PENS!! :-)
