THE STORY:

Hello friend! Participating in these events helps me keep to my goals of becoming healthier and stronger in the face of chronic autoimmune illness. Hashimoto's hypothyroidism makes maintaining fitness a real bear, to say the least, but I refuse to let it win! A bonus perk to competing in live race events is being able to leverage my participation into help for worthy charitable organizations such as the Mario Lemieux Foundation and Humane Animal Rescue (a.k.a. Paws Over Pittsburgh). I'm hoping my friends and acquaintances share the same enthusiasm and drive, and will consider contributing even $1 to my fundraising drive for the upcoming Pittsburgh Marathon race weekend, May 5-6, 2018.


The Mario Lemieux Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for cancer research and patient care, as well as Austin’s Playrooms, an initiative that creates playrooms for children and families in medical facilities.  The Mario Lemieux Foundation was created in 1993 by hockey legend Mario Lemieux.  In that year, Mario was enjoying the greatest season of his brilliant career and on pace to establish a new NHL scoring record. Then he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease.  After a successful battle with Hodgkin's, Mario is now 24 years cancer free and his experience led him to focus on ways to assist those not so fortunate.  He devotes much of his time to the Foundation raising funds to help reach the ultimate goal: a cure for cancer.
