Pittsburgh Dachshund Meetup Group Message Board › Pittsburgh Marathon Cheer Team @ Western PA Humane Society
Mc Donald, PA
It would be fun for members of our group to participate in this. It's not an event we should take our dogs to, but we can come out and support the Western PA Humane Society, have some fun, and cheer on the runners in the marathon.
If you would like to participate, e-mail me and I will make sure the folks at the Humane Society know how many people we'll be bringing to join the cheer team.
Here's the info:
Last year, our cheer-a-thon participants helped 20,000 marathon runners make it to the finish line AND earned us nearly $300!
We expect over 25,000 runners in this year's marathon, so we need to kick our cheering up a notch!
This is a great group project, suitable for sports teams, businesses, and other organizations. It's a simple way to help the shelter- no fundraising or marathon training required!
How it works: Our lovely cheerers will arrive at WPHS the morning of the marathon. We will pass out signs and other WPHS gear, then cheer on the runners as they pass by. At the end of the marathon, runners vote on which cheering section inspired them most. The charity teams with the most votes will be awarded up to $1,000!
