My Story…

I'm excited to push myself and "Run for a Reason" in the 2022 Pittsburgh Half Marathon.

In honor of friend & warrior Amy Pannebaker, fundraising earnings will benefit the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation. The foundation exists to provide financial support for the hospital’s mission of improving the health and well-being of children, teenagers, and young adults through excellence in patient care, teaching, research, and advocacy. Included in these efforts are outreach events for children with cancer, a disease close to both our hearts. 

Thank you in advance for your support.


I am running my 2022 Pittsburgh Marathon race in support of Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation. 

Funds raised will support the patients and families served by UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. Last year UPMC Children's Hospital had over 1 million patient visits and many of the programs, initiatives, and resources that make UPMC Children’s so special are funded by philanthropic gifts. Things like distraction therapy which provides patients something else to focus on during their medical procedures, the Child Life Department which provides many activities to create a sense of normalcy for hospitalized children, and the Free Care Fund which covers the cost of medical care for those that cannot afford it. These areas are not covered by insurance, yet are critically important to helping families face the many challenges that accompany a child’s treatment.

Please consider donating to support the patient champions at UPMC Children's!
