The PitCCh In Foundation (PIF) was established in 2008 with its first event in Cleveland, OH (my hometown) and was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) by CC and Amber Sabathia to support the communities that have given them so much. The foundation developed three Signature Programs and supported ongoing special initiatives to enrich the lives of youth from the inner city - including NYC & Cleveland. The goal of these programs is to help teens raise their self-esteem through educational and athletic activities.
In addition to these phenomenal programs, the charity has also given over 20,000 children - backpacks and school supplies.
I am extremely excited to run the 2017 NYC Marathon on behalf of this important charity - the core focus is underprivileged children. **During the summer there are also volunteer opportunities in NY, please let me know if you are interested.** **Every donation, regardless of size, is very appreciated**
