Run Homelessness into the Ground!
"Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees." Hebrews 12:12
There are many ways to help end homelessness here in Pittsburgh. Some people give. Some volunteer, and some pray. But now, for the first time ever, L.I.V.I.N.G. Ministry is giving you the chance to help us by running!
This year, L.I.V.I.N.G. Ministry has been selected by the Pittsburgh Marathon to be a contributing charity. What that means is that we are giving the opporutnity to raise awareness and money through the marathon. You can be a part of this by sponsoring our teams!
First, you can support L.I.V.I.N.G. Ministry's Relay Teams
L.I.V.I.N.G. Ministry is having (2) Relay teams run/walk the marathon this year. Josh and Charles along with some of the men that we serve will be running the marathon relay. They will train together, pray together, and then run together on May 5th. Also Samone and Lindsey have their own relay team with some of the women from the women's side of the ministry. They also have beent training and are looking forward to running on the 5th.
Second, you can support one of our partner runners!
As you can see below, we have 12 people that have chosen to run for L.I.V.I.N.G. Ministry. This means that they join our family for this cause and commit to raising $500. If you are led, you can pick any one of them and donate to their team as well. If you don't know any of them, then pick one who still needs the most money to raise!
