BENEFITING: Spay N Save Inc
We are 4 sisters - Sue, Melissa, Jen, and Allie - running 103 miles to help 1000s of pets cared for by Spay N Save, a low cost veterinary and spay/neuter clinic in central Florida.
In January and February, 2016, we will be running (ok, maybe we shouldn't use fancy words like "running" - we will be participating at a pace faster than walking) in the RunDisney Star Wars races (ok, maybe we shouldn't use fancy words like "races" - event) in California,and Princess Weekend event in Florida . Between the 4 of us, we will be finishing 4 10ks and 6 half-marathons -- 103 miles total.
Until recently, we were under the impression the internet was for cat videos, so when we first learned about Crowdrise and the opportunity to give back, we were immediately taken. We decided to use our training commitment to help raise money for Spay N Save, a nonprofit clinic dedicated to reducing the homeless pet population in central Florida through spay/neuter surgeries, as well as providing low cost veterinary care for pet owners. In just a few short years, Spay N Save has performed over 20,500 surgeries! Plus, they have an absurdly cute logo! How can you say no to that?
As a bonus for all of our friends from New Mexico, your dollars will go twice as far, as we will pledge to match your donations to our fundraiser with a donation to the Wildlife Center in Espanola, NM.
Thank you all for your help! We will be pounding the pavement through heat indeces of 110 and wind chills of -10 in the next 6 months, and the knowledge of the critters we are helping will inspire us to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Please check back periodically for updates and photos.
