Steel City Greyhounds is a Pittsburgh-based nonprofit that is devoted to finding homes for retired racers. In fact, they happen to be the group that found Argos for me, so it is safe to say that they are near and dear to my heart for introducing me to my great doggie love.
And I have found out that they are assembling a team to run in the Pittsburgh Marathon this coming May in order to raise funds for the dogs.
If you are a marathon runner, want to be a marathon runner (or walker) or even if you just want to run a half-marathon, I ask you to join their team. You need not have adopted a greyhound to join up. You don't even need to be from Pittsburgh (just willing to travel here!) Or if you have a friend that you think may be interested, let them know about it.
And if you're like me, and would probably expire if you even had to run one mile, donations are gladly accepted! :)

I love the idea of humans running to raise money for these ex-racers. It is just somehow very fitting.
