BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh
ORGANIZER: YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh
I have grown up as a member of the YMCA. From learning to swim and play sports as a child, to maintaining my health as an adult, the YMCA has continuously remained a part of my life. I never thought I would work as an employee of the Y, however, until relocating to Coraopolis, PA. Working at the Western Area YMCA has made living in an unfamiliar place much easier with friendly members and an amazing staff that have both made me feel at home. This support has made an incredible impact on my life, and has enhanced my appreciation for what this organization is providing for communities, families and inidviduals nationwide. The Pittsburgh Half Marathon is the perfect opportunity for me to give back through an activity I love! As I know many of you have benefitted from your local YMCA, you can be certain your donations will help support a facility that is providing countless positive opportunities for a community I now call my home.
