EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
Thank you for supporting me as a charity runner in this year's Pittsburgh half marathon. This will be the longest distance I've ever run, and your support means a lot to me. It means a lot because it's helping me fight back against my MS and cross an item off of my bucket list. And it means a lot because it's changing the lives of kids.
All contributions go directly to the scholarship fund at YMCA Camp Kon-O-Kwee Spencer, the place I've called "home" for the past year. In 2016, more than 170 kids attended our overnight camp on a scholarship. For some of these kids, their time at camp is the only chance they have to experience the outdoors, to go to sleep with a full stomach, or to feel loved, accepted, and safe in their own surroundings.
