Combining my love of dogs and everything K9, along with the respect and appreciation for what CT Service Members have sacrificed for our country. I've chosen to run the fifth lap (10am-1050am) of the 65km distance in memory of SSG Edwin Rivera. I'll be raising as much as I can for this event and my donations will go to K9's For Warriors. K9's For Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to warriors suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disability, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma as a result of military service post 9/11. The organization's goal is to empower them to return to civilian life with dignity and independence. K9s For Warriors is a tax-exempt 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization. 95% of dogs used in K9s For Warriors program are rescue/shelter dogs. 82% of funds directly impact programs to help disabled veterans. Thank you in advance to all of those who donate or participate.
