Running for Ayla Mahone
Organized by: Amanda McCarthy
When I decided to run the Pittsburgh Half Marathon I wanted to run it for a cause that I truly believed in. On March 9, 2016 six people were murdered in a horrific shooting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a result, eleven children lost one of their parents...one of these children was my student five year old Ayla Mahone. I hope to raise money to help this little girl who most definitely has a rough road ahead of her from losing her mother at such a young age. No donation is too little...anything helps and will be greatly appreciated. All the money raised will go directly to Ayla, nothing goes to me or to anything associated with the marathon. My purpose of raising money through the marathon is to try to reach as many people as possible since the fundraiser will be posted on the marathon page. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
