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 perks of their choice along with a custom made keychain handmade by a local artist. Last year the options were: running cap, running shirt/tank, workout towel, embroidered blanket, lapel pin, coffee mug, pint glass, and flashlight. As individuals hit various amounts, they received more rewards. Each runner is guaranteed at least one item of their choice among the reward items. We also host an internal competition among our runners where the top fundraiser and person with the highest number of donations get special organizational prizes as well!
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!
