Light of Life Rescue Mission's 2021 Virtual Pittsburgh Marathon Team - Light of Life Rescue Mission

Light of Life Rescue Mission’s 2021 Virtual Pittsburgh Marathon Team

About Our Event

This is our 9th year as an official charity of the Pittsburgh Marathon!  That means runners can choose to run any of the races (the kid’s marathon, the 5k, marathon relay, half marathon, or full marathon) and raise money and awareness for Light of Life. If your fundraising minimum is met for the race, the registration fee for your race will be refunded to you!  

Due to COVID-19, the 2021 Pittsburgh Marathon will be held as a virtual event throughout the month of May! The charity runner fundraising deadline is May 31st, 2021.

2021 race fundraising minimums:  

  • Full Marathon – $500  
  • Half Marathon – $400  
  • Relay Team – $1,000 (per team)  
  • 5K – $150 
  • Kids Marathon and Toddler Trot — $50
  • Pet Walk — $50

    Over the past 8 years, our runners have raised $490,000 for the homeless men, women, and children of Pittsburgh. 


    Last year, the Pittsburgh Marathon moved virtual, and we still had over 40 runners raise over $16,000 for the homeless men, women, and children of Pittsburgh!  

    Let’s make this year our biggest yet! Register to run virtually for Team Light of Life and fundraise for the Mission. Join us as we continue taking strides toward hope and healing.
