The DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon will be Boston Strong on May 5, 2013.
DICK'S Sporting Goods along with Cox Providence Rhode Races, Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon and the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon will honor the victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy by providing a "Boston Blue" wristband to anyone who donates to the "The One Fund Boston". Donors can choose from two types of wristbands; "#Run for Boston" or "Boston Strong." Runners will be able to show their solidarity every step of their journey to the finish line in support and honor of Boston.
Bracelets are available for a suggested $1.00 minimum donation, which will be collected at the GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo on Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4.
Also supporting The One Fund Boston at this year’s GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health & Fitness Expo will be the proceeds of select items from the following vendors:
- DICK’S Sporting Goods
- Asics and Wear Your Number
- Caesar’s Designs
- Chica Bands
- And many more*
For your convenience, donations to The One Fund Boston can also be accepted directly by clicking the “Donate to this Fundraiser” button on the right side of this page.
This year’s race will be an opportunity not just to “Run for Boston,” but also to run with Boston.
Joining us on May 5 to finish their 26.2-mile journey that began on April 15 will be 25 runners who were unable to finish the Boston Marathon due to the tragic events that unfolded that day. These runners, many of who were themselves raising money for charity, have received this tremendous opportunity thanks to a donation made by DICK’S Sporting Goods.
Whether you participate on race day as a runner, volunteer or spectator, we invite all of you to join us for a moment of silence at the start line on May 5, 2013.
