THE STORY:

I am running the 2010 New York City Marathon and encourage everyone to support my efforts to raise money for the Humane Society of Highlands County. I am the manager of this non-profit, no-kill for space shelter that exists on donations only. They do not receive any money from any national organizations, city, county, state, or federal governments. In the case of grants, they have been told numerous times they are too small to qualify. This has led to a funding shortage to take care of the homeless dogs and cats that are at the shelter.

I challenge everyone who reads this to help these animals by pledging a donation based on my completing the NYC Marathon. Your donation can be based on my completion time, so much per mile, or just a general donation. For example, my goal completion time is 5:30:00. You can say if I finish the marathon in 5:15:00, you'll pledge $100. If I finish it in 5:00:00, you give $500. Or, you can say, "I pledge $2.00 per mile." That is $52.40. $1.00 per mile is only $26.20!! Or give as much as you'd like...it all goes to the animals!

You can donate here, send a check, call with a credit card, or donate at our website...just say it is for the "Running for the Shelter" marathon challenge so we can keep track of how many people donate for this particular fundraiser!

Get it? Now do it! The animals say "Thank you"
