Hi. Four of my friends--Angela Abadilla, Ned Twyman, Jody Guy, Brian Corr--and I are running in the May 6, 2012, Pittsburgh Marathon to raise funds for the Pittsburgh Promise. The Promise is a last dollar scholarship fund that sends Pittsburgh Public Schools' students to college for free. It's pretty awesome. So are you. Let your awesomeness shine and join with us in spirit as we run. Our goal is to raise $1,000. Can you help us do this? Any donation will help. You can donate online here for free! Plus, you can share this with the other people you know and get them involved so together you can help us change the lives of kids in a good way! It doesn't get any better than this. Truth.
Our team's name is Shamrocks & Promises. Yay! More about us: Angela--super fabulous supervisor of arts programming in Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS), fantastic musician and mom with serious cred in all things fashionable and cool; Ned--language arts teacher in PPS and moonlighting rock journalist with great instincts and serious musical chops; Brian--science curriculum specialist of some note, Irishman and fab musician in his own Irish Rock Band--Red Hand Paddy; Jody--highly regarded visual arts coordinator, very promising whistler of some note (ha ha) and super sprinter (our edge); Kate--fundraiser, writer, yogini and long ago a musician also with an affinity for complication and the unusual, not to mention, though I will, peppermint. We all share the same inspiration--knowledge, truth, fun, and making the world a better place. Share the love!
