Education can transform a life and a region. The Pittsburgh Promise depends on the generosity of our community to ensure post-secondary scholarships for Pittsburgh's kids.
On Saturday, May 18, 2019, join our 5K Walk, Fun Run, or Virtual Run to raise awareness and essential scholarship funds.
All activities will begin and end at Pittsburgh Allderdice (2409 Shady Ave, Pgh, PA 15217, Squirrel Hill) and kickoff at 8:00 AM. Walker check-in and refreshments will run from 7:30-8:00 AM. The 5K Walk will go past 2 Pittsburgh Public Schools in the East End: Pittsburgh Linden and Colfax, and be led by Promise staff members. The Fun Run will occur at Allderdice. All registered Promise Eligible students will get to race a local athlete/celebrity and win bragging rights and a fabulous prize. All walkers are encouraged to raise or donate at least $50 to the Walk so we can provide scholarships for our hard-working students.
