ORGANIZER: Team All
EVENT: Team All Heart 2016
EVENT DATE: Dec 11, 2016
I am so excited to announce that I will (once again) be participating in the Dallas Marathon! I haven't worked up the courage to run a full marathon just yet, so I will be participating in the half-marathon again this year. I will also be raising money for two fantastic organizations - The Neiman Marcus All Heart Fund and Dallas Pets Alive.
The All Heart Fund supports disaster relief, as well as provides financial assistance to fellow associates at Neiman Marcus Group when a crises occurs.
Dallas Pets Alive is an organization run entirely by volunteers and all of their pets are housed by dedicated foster families throughout the DFW area. Here is a little more about Dallas Pets Alive from their website -
"We focus on helping the healthy and treatable pets who are at risk of euthanasia at Dallas Animal Services – by rescuing the pets at greatest risk and helping owners who are having problems so great that they need to surrender their pet(s) to a shelter.
In our rescue program, we focus primarily on the pets who have already been passed over by other groups and the Dallas Animal Services’ adoption programs, taking only the healthy and treatable pets who have no other options."
As a rescue dog owner myself, I can't think of a better organization to support. If you choose to support me in my fundraising efforts, my minimum goal to raise this year is $1,500. The funds raised will be split equally between the Neiman Marcus All Heart Fund as well as Dallas Pets Alive.
