THE STORY:

STEEL CITY GREYHOUNDS INC wrote -

Be a runner who helps former runners.

Steel City Greyhounds (SCG) is a nonprofit corporation that promotes the adoption of retired racing greyhounds in the metropolitan Pittsburgh and surrounding western Pennsylvania regions.

We are an all-volunteer organization which means that 100% of the proceeds raised by the SCG Marathon Team goes to the organization's adoption program. The proceeds cover the costs associated with greyhound medical expenses, including spay and neuter surgery, vaccinations, and wellness exams, along with other adoption program operating costs.

Our goal is to raise money to help retired racers find forever homes. Greyhounds begin their lives like no other breed, destined to be raised in the racing environment. They are very competitive athletes, yet gentle and sensitive by nature, making them perfect canine companions. By running or donating you help these 45 MPH couch potatoes move from the kennel to a couch!

All of our team members will receive either a performance running cap or shirt (runner's choice). As runners hit additional benchmarks, they will receive additional benefits:

In 2016, our fundraising tiers were as follows: 
Tier 1 -- $250
--Performance running cap
--Performance shirt

Tier 2 -- $500
--SCG workout towel
--Performance running cap
--Performance shirt
--Invitation to our appreciation dinner

Tier 3 -- $750
--SCG pint glass
--SCG workout towel
--Performance running cap
--Performance shirt
--Invitation to our appreciation dinner

We are in the works to come up with GREYT rewards for our runners, so check back often! This should give you an idea, though, of how we reward our runners.

Our marathon team has an unlimited number of spaces for runners of the full or half marathon, 5K, kids marathon, and pet walk. If you don't want to run by yourself, then join as a part of a relay team! As a marathon charity team participant, you will save money on your registration fee while supporting a greyt cause. If you've already registered, you can still join and fundraise! Join the team today by clicking Join!

You can contact Korryn Mozisek at scgmarathonteam@gmail.com if you have questions or need help registering.
