Run for Jessie: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016

We Ran for Jessie again this spring in the conjunction with the Pittsburgh Marathon. Two relay teams and half marathon runners, donning “I Run for Jessie” shirts raised close to $1,000 for the Jessie Games and enrichment programs offered to children in need through Catholic Charities. The day started out a little rainy and cool, but cleared up for comfortable running. Family and friends, some in their first marathon event, came together for a day that started out a little rain and cool but cleared up for comfortable running.

We hope to have even more runners next year! You don’t need to be able to run a full marathon. We have spaces on relay teams for those who want to walk or run only a few miles. So if you want to join the Run For Jessie team, email us at thejessiegames@gmail.com.

 

In the spring of 2016, we Ran for Jessie in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Marathon. Several relay teams and marathon runners, donning “I Run for Jessie” shirts  raised more than $2,000 for the Jessie Games and the Catholic Charities Summer Lunch program. The day started out a little rainy and cool, but cleared up for comfortable running. It was our first time working with the marathon and we plan to build on the success next year.
