In 2012, John and Shana Mackie started hosting what they’ve called their “Party with a Purpose” with the goal of raising awareness for a worthy local ministry or cause.
This year, the event will support the creation of the Coach Dave Gray Scholarship Fund at The Pittsburgh Foundation. Coach Gray has dedicated his career to working with youth in Western Pennsylvania. Through his classes, camps, training and other activities, he impacts the lives of thousands of kids in a positive way. Dave’s programs instill confidence, self-esteem, promote a healthy, active lifestyle and they’re fun for kids. The scholarship fund will honor Coach Dave and help benefit children from Western Pennsylvania for years to come.
John & Shana Mackie invite you to join them in raising support to initiate the Coach Dave Gray Scholarship Fund by giving online today. Click HERE for more details on how to donate to this worthy case.

I am so honored and humbled to have been nominated and chosen as one of KDKA’s Larry Richert’s Hometown Heroes 2016. For the past 20 years, my mission has been to serve our community as a positive influence for kids and families. I believe that physical fitness and sports should be fun for kids and adults, and should create bonds within communities and families. Never have I thought of myself as a Hero, but I am just doing something that I truly believe in.
Thank you so much to all the kids and families who have touched my life. Without you and your shared belief in my mission, I would not be where I am today.
Larry Richert’s Hometown Heroes event will be held at the Lexus Club at PNC Park on Thursday, March 3, 2016. Please consider joining me that night to accept this honor, the evening will benefit the Warrior Foundation, a local organization dedicated to serving post 9/11 veterans.

Thank you! -CD
I’m Coach Cody, and Coach Dave’s right hand man for over three years now, and have loved it every step of the way! From the sunny days at summer camp to the icy cold training days of Ready, Set, Run, I’ve been there through it all. My experience has been nothing short of spectacular. After graduating from Penn State University and beginning to work at CDG Sports, I have had the opportunity to work with many amazing children of the community. I bring all the enthusiasm, encouragement, and experience to programs I teach, whether it’s a fun and games Kindergarten class, or one of my athletic development classes. I believe in finding and fostering a passion in a sport that will keep you active is crucial to a lifetime of wellness. I look forward in continuing to work with the children of the Pittsburgh area.
Keep an eye out for a biking program to come to the area, Coach Cody is an avid mountain biker and can’t wait to introduce your children to the ins and outs of the wonderful world of cycling.
