BENEFITING: CHAMPAIGN COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 27, 2013
This is our first year actually participating in the Illinois Marathon instead of being part of the Bike Team during the marathon. Since we are twins, we are dressing up as Thing 1 and Thing 2 (which are Cat In The Hat characters) and walking in the 10K (6.4 miles).
We have been volunteers for the Champaign County Humane Society for over nine years. As volunteers, we participate in the Champaign County Humane Society's Giant Garage Sale (coming this May 24th & 25th), walk dogs, give baths to cats and dogs (so they'll more adoptable); clip cat nails, do tons of laundry and continuously clean inside the shelter. It's an endless job but very rewarding. During the past 16 years, I have adopted five lovable cats from the humane society. My sister (Thing 1) has adopted one dog and four cats over the years. She also does foster care for kittens and puppies. Since 2012, Cindy has fostered 13 puppies and 11 kittens w/their moms. The last group was 3 day-old kittens and their mom. It's been fun watching them grow over the past three weeks.
Please donate generously and help all the animals that come to the shelter find their forever homes.
