Run/Walk for Gilda’s Club

We are recruiting volunteers to run/walk for Gilda’s Club at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon on May 3 and 4, 2014.

As a charity runner/walker for Gilda’s Club you will be an advocate for our mission – to provide anyone touched by cancer with a welcoming community where they can participate in free activities and share laughter, tears, and knowledge.  The impact of our services can best be understood by a quote from an 8 year member:  “No one in my class has a mommy with cancer, but some of the kids here do and they understand.” 

With your help, we will continue to make sure that anyone touched by cancer can come to a place where they are understood.

We welcome runners and walkers of all levels to join us at the Pittsburgh Marathon.  Whether you’re a seasoned runner who is pushing yourself to complete a full marathon or a beginner who walks the 5K, every person who raises funds plays an integral part in our fundraising success.

Depending on which race you choose, you will be required to raise a certain amount:

  • Full Marathon:  $600
  • Half Marathon:  $450
  • 5K:  $250
  • Relay (5 people):  $1,200
  • Kids Marathon:  $50
