BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF THE VERONA STREET ANIMAL SHELTER
EVENT DATE: Jun 07, 2014
2014 The Fast and The Furriest, hosted by Verona Street Animal Society in support of Rochester Animal Services is on Saturday, June 7th.
The purpose of this event is to raise funds and awareness for Rochester Animal Services (RAS) and the Verona Street Animal Society (VSAS). RAS is a municipal care and control agency in the City of Rochester with an annual intake of over 6,000 dogs and cats. RAS is committed to increasing the live release rate for the animals in their care. VSAS supports Rochester Animal Services by raising funds to help subsidize the spay/neuter program, promote and underwrite adoption specials and purchase microchip and other medical supplies that extend beyond the reach of the city’s budget.
I'm running the 10k for two reasons -
(1) I enjoy running and since I'm training for the Boilermaker, having the opportunity to run a 10k about a month before the 15k is great!
But the bigger reason?
(2) I adopted Jackson from the Rochester Animal Services roughly 6 years ago and I'd like to give back to the organization who brought this fluffball to me.
Please help me in supporting and raising money to help this organization do more for animals in need in Rochester.
