In April 2006, Elora Geier, a 7th-grader in the North Allegheny School District, lost her life after a courageous battle with Leukemia. Elora faced her illness bravely as she had faced so many other challenges in her life. Before she was two years old, she was hit by a car and sustained a brain injury. But, her academic and physical struggles did not stop her “can do” attitude and her loving spirit. Elora brought out the best in others and Elora’s H.O.P.E. Fund wants to continue this tall order.
Elorapalooza 12 was held on Sunday, July 30, 2017 at the North Park Lodge. We had beautiful weather and another great turnout! We also added a 5-mile race and Kids’ Fun Run for this year’s event! Thanks to all of the runners, sponsors and supporters who helped make a difference!
The success of Elorapalooza depends on the generosity of people and organizations that recognize the importance of participation in activities that benefit our society. Our 2017 sponsors are demonstrating their willingness to take an active role in helping others.
If you’re interested in making a donation to the Elora’s H.O.P.E. Fund, you can do so by visiting the Fund’s page at The Pittsburgh Foundation. Donations support patients with blood cancer and future Special Education teachers.
We are pleased to now be associated with the Pittsburgh Foundation as we continue our efforts to help others in memory of Elora.
