BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
ORGANIZER: LLS Pittsburgh
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
This year I'm running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon in memory of my loving and vibrant grandpa. This is my third year supporting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and I'm proud to be a part of the fight against blood cancer.
The LLS did so much good in my grandpa's life as he battled leukemia. By raising money through the Pittsburgh Half Marathon, I know that I can make a real impact in the lives of patients in the Pittsburgh area.
Donations to the LLS fund critically-needed research and go to financial aid and support programs for local patients. Last year alone, the Western PA and West Virginia LLS chapter was able to provide over one million dollars in co-pay assistance to families in need throughout Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
