THE STORY:

As a sophomore at Grove City College, one of my friends gave me a bulletin from ACAC with an Urban Impact advertisement for volunteers. For the rest of my time at GCC, I volunteered with Urban Impact's basketball programs and worked at summer day camp. I credit those experiences with me falling in love with the North Side. 

As I worked at Urban Impact in graduate school, I also met a pretty little lady at the copier. I tricked her into marrying me and raising 3 beautiful kids. 

Here I am 13 years later loving the life God has blessed me with as I teach at Perry High School on the North Side, live in a house on the North Side, and go to Mosaic Community Church on the North Side. All can be attributed to that bulletin announcement.

I have run the Pittsburgh Marathon the last 4 years to raise money for the Pittsburgh Promise. I have already met my fundraising goal for 2015's full marathon, so now I am committing to run the 5k on Saturday to raise money for Urban Impact. 

Please consider donating to an organization that has done so much for me, continues to do so much for North Side kids, and will do so much more in the name of Jesus.
