BENEFITING: Urban Impact
ORGANIZER: Urban Impact
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
As some of you know, Zora participates in one of Pittsburgh's youth programming gems, The Urban Impact Foundation. She sings in the UIF Choir and is taking drama as a part of the Performing Arts Academy. Her spiritual journey and personal walk with the Lord has been positively impacted by the ministry, and the value of what she receives far outweighs what I have to pay for her participation. The organization provides countless hours in preparation and service to youth, thriving on the generosity of donors and volunteers. It hosts various types of fundraising opportunities to continue and expand services, and The DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon is one of those opportunities. In order to give back in gratitude for what UIF does to support me in developing a beautiful gift (Zora), I am fundraising through participation in the 5K race, on Saturday, May 6, 2017 in Pittsburgh's Northshore.
I seek your continued support through word-of-mouth, e-mail, twitter, and facebook, and rely heavily on our network to get the word out. My goal is fairly reasonable - $200. If just 20 people give $10 or 40 give $5, we can reach our goal before the April 30, 2017 deadline.

Feel free to pass this to our extended family and friends, anyone who has asked how Zora is doing and is proud of what she's up to. It's an organization I hope she can grow with over several years.
