BENEFITING: Pittsburgh Three Rivers Marathon Inc.
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
It's the last week for voting, and in a surprise push, Star Wars has inched within striking distance of The Wizard of Oz. Currently, The Wiz is leading by a mere 65 votes. With every dollar counting as one vote, Star Wars could easily take the lead today. I'm mean, come on, someone surely wants to see Vinh as Princess Leia? Remember, voting ends Friday at Midnight. Don't miss your chance to see Vinh rocking the bikini.
The Wizard of Oz: 1395
Star Wars: 1330
The Golden Girls: 690
Also, we have a special fundraising event scheduled.
Do you constantly see our posts about our charity running and think "I don't care enough to give them money or what they wear?" Well, we got you covered this year. We have a way for you to donate money to a good cause whilst also having a few drinks.
Vinh, Gerb and Tony will be guest bartending on May 4th at the Rivers Club as part of their fundraising for this year's marathon. We'll be unveiling the winner of our costume voting. There will be drink specials (possibly some costume inspired cocktails), appetizers and a raffle. All cash tips will go directly to Project R.U.N. (Reaching Underserved Neighborhoods).
If you can't make this event and would still like to donate, our donation page will be active through May 31.
Once again, we are partnering with P3R to help support Project R.U.N (Reaching Underserved Neighborhoods). This charity helps reduce barriers to wellness opportunities and serve children in urban neighborhoods.
This charity serves the same neighborhoods we grew up in. We want to give back to our communities, and help give those kids a few opportunities we didn’t have growing up. We've all run marathons in the past, none of us are going to win or set any records. We come out to make ourselves look like fools for the enjoyment of the supports and fellow runners alike, all in 26.2 miles.
As always, every dollar you contribute counts as 1 vote in our costume contest. This years costumes are:
1. Star Wars
3. The Golden Girls
4. Wizard of Oz
As an added bonus, we will be giving away PRIZES to some lucky people who donate to this cause. Each dollar you contribute will give you an opportunity to win!
So, whether you believe in this cause, believe in us, or simply want to see us run around looking like idiots, please donate to this charity.
