Letter to the editor: Thanks to all who Race for Grace

On April 6, 2,094 runners and walkers were treated to gorgeous spring weather at the 12th annual Race For Grace. As 450 volunteers ensured this spectacular event operated as a well-oiled machine, hundreds of spectators and supporters enjoyed a day of activities for all ages. Norwin High School was packed — estimated at 3,000 strong — with an extraordinary community to prove “Pittsburgh is Stronger Than Cancer.”

The atmosphere was indescribable. All around, there were moments of Grace in motion. Spirits were lifted, compassion was inspired, joy was sparked, kindness was multiplied, awareness was raised, funds were collected, heroes were paid tribute and legacies were honored. We were reminded of what cancer cannot do and that grace is limitless.

Because of our faithful followers and generous donors, we expect to surpass this year’s fundraising goal of $160,000 in the coming weeks. You can help make that possible by contributing at www.reflectionsofgrace.org.

Thank you for choosing to Race For Grace. Thank you for supporting our cause by running or walking, donating hair, buying raffle tickets, food and merchandise, dancing, sponsoring, and volunteering. Thank you for choosing to stand in solidarity with us in the fight against pediatric brain cancer. We are stronger together.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
