BENEFITING: ITS A PITTIE RESCUE
EVENT DATE: Oct 19, 2013
I have loved to run for years and have contemplated running a marathon for quite a while. As many of you know I am a huge animal lover; especially dogs. At the end of March of 2013 there was a story that went viral regarding a dog horribly abused that was taken in by It's A Pittie Rescue and the love and devotion they put in to rescuing this dog who was also pregnant with 10 pups so touched me I felt the need to pay it forward to these selfless and kind people. It's A Pittie Rescue is dedicated to rescuing, rehabbing and reforming the Pit Bull breeds and educating people about one of America's most loyal kind breeds, one dog at a time. They are a committed to saving dogs lives and educating people. I ask in supporting me in my first marathon you support my cause and donate to It's A Pittie Rescue so they can continue to do the wonderful work they do. I will run 26.2 miles in honor of Mama Petunia and her pups so her death is not in vain. Please read Mama's story and more about the rescue at rescueapittie.org/mama-petunia/ or go to their Facebook page.
