BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh
ORGANIZER: YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
I’m running the Pittsburgh 1/2 Marathon on May 7th, 2017. I’ll be a running for a charity. I selected the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh with all donations going to Deer Valley YMCA Camp. This is my first ½ MARATHON and first race longer than 6 miles. For those that don't know, a 1/2 MARATHON is 13.1 miles. I’m excited for the challenge and set an even more challenging goal. I want to complete the ½ MARATHON in 1 hour and 45 minutes, which is an 8 minute mile pace. Wish me luck!
The goal of this page is to help raise money to support the YMCA and Deer Valley. Deer Valley is a tradition that has brought families and friends together since 1957. It’s been my family’s tradition for over 50+ years and something that I hope to pass along to my kids one day. Deer Valley provides the opportunity for kids to break out of their comfort zones and connect with new friends. All donations will go a long way to help preserve camp for the future generations.
Please donate to help support Deer Valley and help me succeed my goal. The YMCA set my goal to $350 but I know I can surpass that with the support from all of you. Thank you for all your help and support. I hope to see some supporters or fellow runners on May 7th.
