THE STORY:

In May of 2015 I ran my first marathon in memory of my Grandmother and raised money for a cause near to her (and my) heart, the Animal Rescue League.  Running the Pittsburgh Marathon for charity last year truly enriched my experience, making it that much more meaningful.  I truly appreciate all the support I received.  

Last summer Emily and I moved to Pittsburgh and I again will run the Marathon in May, but this time as a resident of my favorite city.  I decided to once again run for a cause, and chose to fundraise for the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh.  

I fell in love with the "Y" as an organization while living in Houston. I continue to be impressed and inspired by all they do in the community here in Pittsburgh, the city I currently live in, grew up in and love.  I would be honored if you would consider making a donation to this cause and supporting the team.  

Just a few of the charitable programs that YMCA campaign funds go to include:

Eliminating Health Disparities

--Provides $120,000 annually in membership and program subsidies --Diabetes Prevention Program--Healthy Kids Day is an annual day at the Y to enhance childhood health and wellness 

Closing the Achievement Gap

-Career Connections: We have a Q&A sessions quarterly with our City High School students and we bring in professionals from all over to share their story and answer questions--Career Days at Urban Pathways: We have our students spend a day with professionals--We have multiple after school programs to keep teens out of trouble and into a good path(Lighthouse Project)

Food Security and Aid to Struggling Families

-Annual Food Drive--Organizes Family Dinners at Children's Hospital--Food Bank at Hazelwood--Men's housing at both Centre Ave and Allegheny Y (2 blocks from me)--We have multiple Urban Gardens that provide fresh fruits and vegetables for families in need

Thank you so much for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Josh
