Fleet Feet’s Dec. 13 holiday lights run will benefit the Victims of Terror Fund.

Fleet Feet’s 8th Annual Holiday Lights Run and Charity Auction, an evening run through downtown Pittsburgh, will raise money for the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s Victims of Terror Fund, according to a news release.

Doors will open at 5 p.m. at Nova Place, 100 S. Commons, Pittsburgh, for the Dec. 13 run. There is no fee for the event.

Participants can make a donation Thursday by purchasing raffle tickets to bid on prize baskets donated by vendors, community partners and local businesses. Tickets will go on sale at 5:30 p.m. and the run will begin at 6:45 p.m.

The annual event invites runners and walkers of all abilities and their families to participate in 2-, 4-, or 6-mile routes showcasing the tree at Point State Park, the PPG Place Wintergarden, the nativity at U.S. Steel Plaza and the Peoples Gas Holiday Market in Market Square.

Last year more than 400 runners raised in excess of $3,500, the release states.

Funds collected this year will will go to the Fund for the Victims of Terror and are earmarked for psychological services, support for families, general services, reconstruction, additional security throughout the community, medical bills, as well as counseling and other services that may prove necessary for victims and first responders of the Oct. 27 Tree of Life shootings during their recovery, according to the release.

Fleet Feet Pittsburgh is a locally owned and operated specialty run/walk store based in Bethel Park’s Norman Centre II.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
