BENEFITING: Our Clubhouse
ORGANIZER: Our Clubhouse
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
This year I will running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon again for Our Clubhouse. After losing my dad to pancreatic cancer is September 2015, I wanted to find a way to honor his memory by contributing to the cancer community. My dad was always my biggest supporter when I started running in marathons. He drove me to races, found me along the routes to cheer me on with his cowbell, and waited around for me to be finished (and after when I plopped on the ground for a while). Continuing running for him and helping others in the process was a great fit. Our Clubhouse is an organization that helps those touched by cancer by providing free counseling, classes (art, fitness, etc), and other group events. The more I learn about what this organization does for patients and their families, the more I'm inspired to keep contributing year to year by running for their team. Please consider donating for my dad and for all those who have to make this awful battle against cancer.
