Join Light of Life Rescue Mission’s 2020 Pittsburgh Marathon Team – May 2nd and 3rd

Run the 2020 Pittsburgh Marathon for Light of Life Rescue Mission

Run With Us!

This is our 8th year as an official charity of the Pittsburgh Marathon!  That means that runners can choose to run any of the races in the Pittsburgh Marathon (the kid’s marathon, the 5k, marathon relay, half marathon, or full marathon) and raise money for Light of Life. In return, Light of Life will pay each runner’s registration fee for their race.

Over the past 7 years, our runners have raised $474,655 for the homeless men, women, and children of Pittsburgh.

Last year, we had 58 runners raise over $54,000 for the homeless men, women, and children of Pittsburgh. This year, we would like to get 150 runners and raise over $100,000. We would love for you to join our team!

Here is how you can help:

Pittsburgh Marathon Finish Line Festival 

As an official charity in the Pittsburgh Marathon, we will hold a table at the Finish Line to be a part of the post-race celebrations on Saturday, May 2nd and Sunday, May 3rd from 7:30 AM – 2:00 PM. This is a great and easy way to be a part of the marathon excitement if you aren’t a runner!

Link to volunteer will be available soon!

After you join our team, we will be in touch with you about your next steps. Fundraising is a lot easier than you think. We walk you through a proven process step by step and give you all the resources you need to successfully raise your money.
