BENEFITING: SUSAN G KOMEN Pittsburgh
ORGANIZER: SUSAN G KOMEN Pittsburgh
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
When I first came to Pittsburgh as an international student in 2014, I was welcomed very warmly by some of the kindest people I have ever met, many of whom are now my closest friends. Among them is a woman who has been so supportive and caring towards me that I have come to think of her as my American mother. While training for my first marathon (NYC 2016), I learnt that unfortunately, her daughter suffers from breast cancer.
And so, for the love of Gail Jones, and for all her benevolence, I'll be running the Pittsburgh Marathon while raising some much-needed dollars for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. If you would like to help this cause, please consider making a donation here. Thank you!
