THE STORY:

Thanks for checking out my fundraising page for the marathon!  Every year that I run I like to raise money for a Pittsburgh charity, and this year it's the Steel City Greyhound rescue.  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.  Katie and I have been walking the greyhounds a few times per week for several months. 

SCG is an all-volunteer organization which means that 100% of the proceeds raised by the 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.

My goal is to raise $500 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 donating you help these 45 MPH couch potatoes move from the kennel to a couch!
