THE STORY:

My name is Cheyenne and I just turned 6 years old. I wanted to let you know that I am running the Pittsburgh Kids Marathon, 1 mile, in May for Light of Life Rescue Mission. Last year our team raised over $76,000! For everyone who donated last year, thank you! 

 

My goal this year is to feed 201 people by raising at least $581 for Light of Life! Our team plans to raise over $100,000! 


I would like to ask you personally to support me as I spend the next several weeks training to run this race. Every dollar counts!

 

Here are some of the ways we’ll use the funds you raise:

$2.58 covers the cost of one meal
$40 cover the cost of one night of shelter for one person
$385 covers the cost of one day of programming for our Women and Children’s Program
$1,000 covers the cost of mattresses, pillows, bedding, and towels for the shelter for one year.

 

Do what you're able and what you feel led by God to do. Also, if you are unable to support, no problem! Just pray for me and for the Mission!

Thank you for your support!

Cheyenne Eury

Light of Life is well-known for providing meals and shelter, but offering basic needs is only one aspect of a broader, multi-faceted mission. We aim to transform the lives of those we serve with faith-based counseling, education, and rehabilitation programming designed to provide essential life resources and empower people to become addiction-free, wage-earning citizens, caring parents, skilled employees and lifelong learners.We serve approximately 1,000 unduplicated people each year.

Light of Life provides comprehensive services to the poor and homeless which fall under two main areas: the Recovery Program and Samaritan Ministries. Our Recovery Program delivers a holistic approach to address the root causes of homelessness and poverty, combining housing with addiction recovery, education and career training, life skills, spiritual enrichment, and other vital services. Samaritan Ministries provide critical points of entry for indigent people seeking help for immediate needs including food, shelter and spiritual outreach.

Light of Life aims to help people to:

Stabilize their lives through access to basic needs
Build a foundation for living addiction-free lives
Have access to educational resources
Learn new skills to achieve career goals
Gain self-esteem, self-determination and essential life skills through group and individual counseling
Gain a sense of hope and purpose through Light of Life’s loving, supportive environment

By equipping those less fortunate with tools to overcome poverty and other adversities, Light of Life helps improve the quality of life for the next generation. With functional, caring parents, children have the chance to succeed in school and grow up as healthy, productive citizens. As a result, Pittsburgh communities can grow and prosper.

Here are some of the ways we’ll use the funds you raise:

$2.58 covers the cost of one meal
$40 cover the cost of one night of shelter for one person
$385 covers the cost of one day of programming for our Women and Children’s Program
$1,000 covers the cost of mattresses, pillows, bedding, and towels for the shelter for one year.
