Run for Their Lives
North Park5K

Run for Lives LogoThe 7th Annual Walk/Run is our largest and most successful fundraising event, growing every year. This year’s walk will take place on Saturday, September 12, 2015 at Harmar Grove Shelter in North Park. There will be both a 5K (3.1 mile) Run at 8:30 am and a 5K walk at 10:00 am. Along with the race and run, the day will include fun for the entire family. There will be a kid’s zone with face painting, balloon artist, bouncy house, games and much more! We expect around 600 walkers & runners to attend.

The Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation serves 26 counties in Western Pennsylvania. People with bleeding disorders cannot clot, or stop bleeding, normally. They take a special "Clotting Factor" that helps stop bleeding. Having a child with this illness or having it yourself can make you want to invest in bubble wrap. Sports & physical activity can be risky, but are also important to overall health. That's why we are SO proud of our community for choosing to have a Walk/Run as their major fundraiser. It's a brave way to show that a bleeding disorder is something you have, it doesn't have you. Join us in supporting these brave people!

Honoree: Captain John Trenz
The Morningside Mile committee is pleased to recognize Air Force veteran and retired firefighter Captain John Trenz as its 2015 honoree. Captain Trenz grew up in Morningside, attended Dilworth Elementary School and Peabody High School. He is a member of St. Raphael’s Roman Catholic Church and a long-standing member of the Morningside VFW Post 3945, where he has been the Senior Vice Commander since 2011.Captain Trenz joined the Air Force in 1968 and served in Vietnam. After returning from Vietnam, Trenz joined the City of Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire. He describes his time on the Rescue Squad, a specially trained group of firefighting veterans, as the most rewarding and busiest time in his 32 years as a firefighter.

Captain Trenz and other members of the Morningside VFW actively volunteer to serve wounded veterans in the Pittsburgh area. Every year, the VFW partners with the VA Hospital to host a “fish rodeo” which helps wounded veterans enjoy fishing despite any limitations they may have due to their injuries. Trenz said that each year he is inspired, “by the veterans who refuse to quit, regardless of the obstacles they face that day or any day.”

Captain Trenz and his wife, LaVerne (Tortorea) Trenz, have lived in Stanton Heights since 1974. Their two adult children, Kristen and John, still reside in the Pittsburgh area.

The Most Amazing Race
Pittsburgh, PA

The Salvation Army’s Most Amazing Race is an annual city-wide challenge race held in and around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on a Saturday each Fall. This past year’s race was held on Saturday, September 20, 2014.

Patterned after the CBS show “The Amazing Race,” this Most Amazing Race combines challenges that are physical (kayaking, running, rock climbing), mental (puzzle solving, strategizing), and sometimes even silly (singing, eating contests), which scatters teams of two all over Pittsburgh in an effort to win their share of the $5,000 cash prize pool!Fantastic prizes are also awarded to the Top Fundraising teams.

From the starting line, teams are given a clue leading them to another checkpoint and they must successfully complete challenges—following clues—until they reach the end of the race. The conclusion of the race involves a check presentation to the winning team as well as prizes to other top performing teams. Teams must raise funds to benefit The Salvation Army’s youth programming in order to qualify for the race, and are awarded advantages in the race and great prizes for being among the top fundraisers.


It certainly helps to be in decent shape, but you can have an AMAZING time doing fun and sometimes even silly challenges… all you have to be is adventurous enough to try something new. You won’t regret it!


  • A minimum of $250 per team is required to qualify for the race. The top 50 fundraising teams will gain entry to the race. The more money raised for The Salvation Army, the better the starting position your team will have at the starting line.
  • Only teams of 2 can participate in the race.
  • Your team must register on this site and commit the funds by the deadline. Funds can be contributed online, by check or as cash.
  • Your team must be 18 years of age or older to participate in the race.
  • Your team must be in good physical health to participate in the race.

Race Challenges

Race challenges tests your physical and mental capability during a variety of tasks. Running and walking will be required at times to get to different locations, if transportation is not completely available by the Port Authority of Allegheny County. Kayaking, rock climbing, swimming and food eating challenges have all been included in previous events.

Length of Course

The length of the course varies from year to year and averages around 15 miles, a lot of which has been covered with public transportation. We will announce this information for this year’s event as it gets closer to the actual event. This represents the total amount distance the race covers, which can be completed by using various approved transportation modes as well as running and walking.

Joey Fabus Superhero Run Over DIPG 5K Race/Walk
Bethel Park High School5K
Please join us for a morning of awareness and inspiration. The Inaugural Joey Fabus Superhero Run Over DIPG 5K Race/Walk will take play on September 20 at 9:00AM at Bethel Park High School, 309 Church Road Bethel Park PA 15102.
Joey Fabus was an 8 year old Bethel Park Student when he was diagnosed with DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) in May 2014. DIPG is a rare brain tumor that occurs in the brain stem. It is nearly impossible to treat due to the tumor's location. The current survival rate is 0%. Treatments have been unsuccessful thus far, and are outdated. Joey lost his battle with DIPG in January 2015.
The Joey Fabus Childhood Cancer Foundation was started in his honor to help spread awareness and raise important funding for research for DIPG. The foundation's mission is to make sure other children do not have to suffer as Joey did, and will not rest until a cure is found.
The race is superhero themed because Joey loved superheroes, especially Captain America. Anyone who knew Joey, or got to know his story realizes that he was a real superhero. We encourage you to wear a superhero shirt, mask, cape, or whatever else you can think of to support this cause.
Awards will be given for the following categories: Age group male and female: 11U, 12-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79. Awards will also be given to master winners, male and female, as well as cash prizes for top 3 male and female finishers.
There will be plenty of on-site parking as Bethel Park High School has 3 big lots.
There will also be plenty of fun activities for kids, including (but not limited to) face painting, Steel City Gamerz, superhero volunteers on hand to take pics with kids, and some carnival-like games! There will also be people on hand to watch children if parents would like to run!
