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

My Story…

This is my first time running any part of the Pittsburgh Marathon. It's incredible what the families in Open Hand Ministries do every day to set and achieve life-changing goals with staff and volunteers. Lives and family trees are being transformed, and abandon houses become homes through the work of this amazing non-profit in my neighborhood. Getting out of bed early this winter train is the least I can do to be a small part of this incredible story.


Open Hand Ministries promotes justice in the East End of Pittsburgh by building a diverse community focused on financial wellness, equity creation, and home-ownership. Initially founded as a ministry of four churches, we respond to social injustice and inequality plaguing our city by providing opportunities for sustainable and affordable homeownership for families in fragile situations. We serve our community by creating community. We partner with like-hearted organizations and individuals, urban and suburban churches, community development corporations, lending agencies, expert trade skill professionals, funding organizations, and other local support agencies in order to equip our families and community for success and homeownership.
