Help ALEX raise money

For participating in 2020 DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend

My Story…

Hello! I am thrilled that together, with Haiti H20, we can make a real difference in the lives of underserved communities in Haiti. I'll be thinking of you with thankfulness as I run the first few miles... after that I'm not sure what the state of my mind will be! I first got connected with this local Pittsburgh charity when some of Haiti H20's directors' kids came to our church youth group. I was impressed with the people, and we did a fundraiser for them last summer, biking from Pittsburgh to D.C. Our youth group has also hosted an official Pittsburgh Marathon fluid station every May for the last four years, cheering on the runners and handing out water and gatorade. This year I decided that maybe they could cheer for me too! My goal is to complete a marathon before I turn 40. This is my last chance!


Haiti H2O is a development organization based in Pittsburgh partnering to transform hope into opportunity in rural Haiti.  Our approach is to take time to listen to local leaders and invest in their ideas, empowering them to make positive change.  We currently work with four rural communities in areas such as education, health and sanitation, business initiatives, home construction, and livestock cooperative.  H2O invests the money raised to impact the lives of people in rural Haiti!
