Bundle up and bring your friends and family to Fleet Feet Pittsburgh's 11th Annual Holiday Lights Charity Run! We are so excited to be back in person this year! This tradition gets bigger and better every year and is always a special night for the entire running community and we look forward to being together again. We are excited to announce that this year's event will benefit the important work being done by Life Changing Service Dogs For Veterans!
The funds will be earmarked to build a new campus in Western Pennsylvania to breed, raise and train medical service dogs capable of assisting deserving recipients who suffer from visible and invisible disabilities including Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) or Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD). There is a special focus on men and women who are veterans of the United States Military Service. Life Changing Service Dogs For Veterans (LCSDFV) is partnered with Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, Inc, which is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to breeding, raising, and training service dogs. Guardian Angels are the people who prepare the dogs for not only changing but saving the lives of our veterans. The Veterans’ Administration estimates that 20 veterans commit suicide every day. No veteran who has received a service dog from the Guardian Angels training program has committed suicide. Join us in helping prevent veteran suicide one dog at a time! Visit Life Changing Service Dogs For Veterans website and the article from the Pittsburgh Tribune for more information about this worthy cause.
