THE STORY:

Hello,

My sisters and I are running the Pittsburgh half marathon again on May 5th.  It is an incredible race and we are also supporting the World Affairs Council-an independent, non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting a deeper understanding of key contemporary international issues.  Through its Education Programs, the World Affairs Council is making a huge impact.  It works primarily with students and teachers in secondary schools throughout the region. Each year the Council organizes and hosts over 100 events focused on recent and upcoming foreign policy challenges. 

With your support, this organization promises to continue it's mission of engaging and empowering our future generations to deal with these important issues.  Congratulations also to Rach who is graduating tomorrow with her masters from the University of Pittsburgh.  She has gained valuable experience through her internship and really enjoyed her time with the Council.
