EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
Thank you so much for visiting my fundraising page in association with the Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center and the Western PA Humane Society! As previously mentioned, I have signed up for the Pittsburgh Half Marathon (taking place on May 7, 2017), and will be running for the ARL/WPaHS Paws Over Pittsburgh team!
This may not come as a surprise to some of you that know me personally (as I am the proud mother of five beautiful cats and a majestic bunny lady), but I have always loved animals and have had the honor of being surrounded by various pets since I can remember. The ARL has also provided excellent services when it comes to getting two of our cats spayed and getting shots updated, and we also adopted one of our cats from them earlier this year! We also added a bunny to our crazy family this past September from the WPaHS (my fiancé's 30th birthday present!). So, the decision to run for Paws over Pittsburgh was a no-brainer!
Here are some of the ways the ARL/WPaHS will use the funds raised:
-$30 will cover the cost of micro-chipping a cat or dog.
-$50 will provide low-cost spay/neuter services to a family who couldn’t otherwise afford it.
-$100 will provide behavioral training for an animal to help him/her find a new home more quickly.
-$1,000 will cover the total care for an animal that stays in the shelter for one month.
After such a positive fundraising experience for the 2016 Pittsburgh Half Marathon, I am going to set the bar high and shoot for an end goal of $1000!
