FUN-raiser extraordinaire: Josh

by Kids of Steel
Josh is a runner, 3rd generation Chiropractor, South Hills business owner, and 2018 DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon charity fundraiser for Kids of STEEL. We wanted to learn a little more about what motives Josh to be a charity runner.

What inspired you to become a charity runner?
Running a full marathon has been a goal of mine for some time. When I decided to sign up for the Pittsburgh Marathon I happened across the charity running section and thought it would be a great way to raise awareness for a cause and to get others involved while at the same time marking something off of my bucket list. 

Why did you choose Kids of STEEL as your designated charity?
Once I saw the page for Kids of STEEL and did a bit of research on the organization, I knew that this was the charity that I wanted to support. In both my personal and professional life I really strive to educate those around me about care for the human frame. In my practice I work on all sorts of musculoskeletal issues in people of all ages, but I always emphasize the need for proper nutrition and exercise. One of the founders of the chiropractic profession, BJ Palmer, once said “The preservation of health is easier than the cure for disease”, so nurturing healthy habits at a young age is an awesome cause and one I am excited to support.

What is your favorite...
Fruit: Blueberries
Vegetable: Broccoli

I don't eat them together, but I eat both every day!

Breakfast food: Only for the morning or can be served at any meal?
Assuming you’re not eating a bowl of sugar frosted choco-bites for dinner, I say breakfast can be had for any meal.

Thank you Josh for fundraising on behalf of the Kids of STEEL program. Click here to support Josh and the Kids of STEEL charity team.
