"Who will now care for the animals, for they cannot look after themselves? Are there young men and women who are willing to take on this charge? Who will raise their voices, when mine is carried away on the wind, to plead their case?" -George Adamson
I am taking on a personal challenge. In May, I plan to run in the Fargo Marathon series! To make this event even more memorable, I am going to be running for a wonderful organization called Born Free USA. The mission of Born Free USA is to end the suffering of wild animals in captivity, rescue individual animals in need, protect wildlife - including highly endangered species - in their natural habitats, and encourage compassionate conservation globally. As a part of the Run Wild Team, I hope to raise awareness for this organization as well as raise funds for wildlife. As many of you know, I am incredibly passionate about animals, so please consider supporting my fundraising efforts!
