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!
Due to COVID-19, the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon has been moved to a virtual race platform. Runners can run their chosen races from any chosen route from April 1, 2020– May 31, 2020 and submit their times electronically.
Unfortunately, the Marathon’s switch to virtual has also come the cut off to sign up as a charity runner. We hope that we can welcome you to our team in 2021!
Although sign-ups have ended, all fundraising efforts continue, and all funds raised go directly to Light of Life.
