BENEFITING: The Pittsburgh Promise
ORGANIZER: The Pittsburgh Promise
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2014
The Pittsburgh Promise helps give scholarships to urban youths in the Pittsburgh Public School District. The Pittsburgh Promise organization is also dedicated to promoting reform in urban schools and investing in the region's workforce by preparing the next generation of workers. They raise $250 million annually to help this cause.
As a pittsburgh native, an urban educator, and an avid runner, the choice to run and raise money for The Pittsburgh Promise was a no brainer.
The Promise is already making a difference across the region, and I would greatly appreciate any contribution, great or small, that you could make to the cause. I know the students in Pittsburgh Public Schools have a tremendous amount to contribute to a collegiate community and to the city's workforce!
