BENEFITING: Born Free USA
EVENT DATE: Sep 22, 2013
I am taking on a personal challenge. In September, I plan to run in the 20th Annual Direct Edge Newport Liberty Half Marathon--my first ever half marathon! To make this event even more memorable, I am going to be running for a wonderful organization called Born Free USA. The mission of Born Free USA is to end the suffering of wild animals in captivity, rescue individual animals in need, protect wildlife - including highly endangered species - in their natural habitats, and encourage compassionate conservation globally. As a part of the Run Wild Team, I hope to raise awareness for this organization as well as raise funds for wildlife. I strongly believe animals deserve to live in their natural habitats and are not here for our amusement (e.g., horse carriage rides, circuses, zoos, etc.). Please consider supporting my fundraising efforts!
