Dollar for Dollar Marathon Match up to $5,000!

Happy Easter Everyone! I hope you had a great day celebrating what Christ has done for you yesterday! We are less than 30 days away from running the Pittsburgh Marathon for Light of Life!

I have some very exciting news to share with you! A generous donor has offered to match every donation I get for the marathon from now on up to $5,000! That means that your donation will instantly double! 


To date, I’ve raised $5,659. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far!

My new goal is $10,659. If I get there, with the match, I will have raised $15,659 for Light of Life!

Will you help me get there by making a donation? You can donate online here:

Easter at Light of Life
Last Thursday, we celebrated Easter with the men, women, and children in our programs. They all shared what God did in their lives at recent spiritual retreats. It is incredible to hear how God is transforming their lives.

2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore anyone who belongs to Christ has become a brand new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

That is the hope we provide at Light of Life. Regardless of what is in their past, in Christ, they can have a brand new start and a brand new end. I’m honored to work and run for an organization that gives the Hope of Christ to those in need on a daily basis!
Thank you for your support. It matters!
