I'm running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon and 5K this year to raise money for the Pittsburgh Promise - an organization that provides $40K scholarships to all eligible Pittsburgh Public School students. I have 3 kids in PPS and have spent about 10 years of my life mentoring Pittsburgh youth. This cause is very near and dear to me.
This is the 5th year in a row I have run on the Pittsburgh Promise charity team. This year, I'm "racing" you all to the start line. I need to log at least 200 training miles before May 4th and my fundraising goal is $550. (All team members are asked to meet this goal in order to cover their entry fee into the race and to make it worthwhile for the organization to participate.) I have currently logged 125 training miles this year (63% of my goal) and have raised $395 (72% of my goal). Please help me reach my goal this year! Every dollar counts!
