Some of my friends are running the Pittsburgh Marathon (or half-marathon) on May 15 to raise money for the village of Tingo Pucara in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador where the Pitt chapter of Engineers Without Borders is about to begin construction of a water pumping system.
If you're a runner in Pittsburgh, you can join the team. If you can't join the team, you can donate here (the team's blog).
I'm spreading the word because I believe that I wouldn't be where I am if I wasn't surrounded with people who care. (I could have called this post "How I got where I am - Part 3.5: My friends who care" :-))
