THE STORY:

LIVING Ministry Incorporated wrote -

What is the best way to end homelessness? How about running!! This past May, we joined with over 70 other runners to run the Pittsburgh Marathon. We had four relay teams, and 50 other runners do everything from a 5K to the whole 26.2 miles. We raised over $27,000, and more importantly included the homeless in one of Pittsburgh’s most celebrated events. In 2017, we expect even better things!

How You Can Help

First, you can join our cause and run for us!! That means you sign up to run as a part of our team. You then would tell all of your friends about L.I.V.I.N.G. Ministry and they would make donations on your behalf to us. As a part of our time, you will get a t-shirt, and will enjoy several fellowship runs and dinners. And best of all, you will be spreading the word about L.I.V.I.N.G. Ministry and will be helping us run homelessness into the ground! (as a special bonus, if you are able to raise at least $500, your marathon fee is free!)

Secondly, you can run with the homeless. We are looking for people who want to develop more intimate relationships with some of our homeless friends. As we have done in the past, we are creating mixed relay teams of both our supporters and the homeless. If you are interested in getting to know more about the homeless and to literally run shoulder to shoulder with them, then this is the opportunity for you. You will have the opportunity to train with the homeless and raise money to help the ministry out.

Maybe you aren’t a runner, but still want to build relationships with our homeless friends. We are looking for coaches and volunteers who will help ensure smooth transitions on Race Day. They will ensure that the homeless are at critical checkpoints, know their routes, have the necessary equipment, and will cheer them on during the event. If this sounds like something you want to do, then we have a spot for you!

Lastly, a great way to support our efforts to serve and build relationships with the homeless is through your financial support. Last year we raised over $27000 through the marathon, and next year our goal is $35,000. You can give directly on our Marathon page, donate directly on our website, or send in a check with ‘Marathon’ in the memo. All contributions are fully tax-deductible, and will greatly help our efforts to run homelessness into the ground!

So there you have it, 4 ways you can help us run homelessness into the ground. For more information about running with or for us, please contact us at chapman AT livingministry DOT org
