EVENT DATE: Aug 17, 2014

THE STORY:

On August 17th, I will be running in the New Balance Falmouth Road Race, and I have committed to raising at least $1,250 for the Animal Rescue League of Boston! There will be more than 11,000 runners—including many of the world’s elite distance runners—participating in the race in Woods Hole, Massachusetts for the challenging 7-mile run. 

It feels great to be running again (I ran the Boston Marathon in 2011 to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Boston), and I couldn't be more excited to represent ARL. If it isn't already obvious, I am a HUGE animal lover! Working as a professional pet portrait artist for the past three and half years and engaging with other passionate animal lovers has really opened my eyes to the importance of rescuing our pets, and providing resources for injured or endangered wildlife. 

Millions of animals are dropped off at animal shelters each year, and a large percentage of those animals are euthanized due to lack of funding and space. Organizations like ARL are committed to saving as many of these animals as they can by caring for them until they can be placed in loving homes. ARL would not exist if it weren't for their passionate volunteers, and generous donations from people like you!

Your tax-deductible gift to the Animal Rescue League of Boston will ensure that animals in distress receive the care they need, and a chance to be adopted into a caring home. I will send you a 2015 Pawblo Picasso Desk Calendar of your choice (cats or dogs) for any donations over $50. We couldn't do it without all of your support, and on behalf of the ARL team and all of our furry (and scaly and feathery) friends that can't speak.... THANK YOU!
