Marathon weekend is finally here for Team Challenge ALS participants, who have spent the last several months training and raising funds for our ALS community.
Between April 30 – May 1 all fifty four members of this year’s team will connect their passion with purpose by participating in various Pittsburgh Marathon events through the Run for a Reason program. Events include the Full Marathon, Half Marathon, Marathon Relay, 5K, Pet Walk and more!
So far, this year’s runners have blown the original $15,000 fundraising goal out of the water, coming together to raise over $26,000 for ALS! Community members looking to support the team can do so with a donation or by volunteering on race day at the ALS Association fluid station.
