BENEFITING: MIGHTY MUTTS INC
ORGANIZER: MIGHTY MUTTS INC
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
Everyone who knows me, knows that that there is absolutely nothing I love more than my family's 6 year old mutt, Roo. When I moved to NYC from California I missed being around dogs so much that I found Mighty Mutts and started volunteering. Let me just say, Mighty Mutts is such an incredible organization! My fellow volunteers have such love for these dogs, and are so committed to helping them find homes. I strongly encourage you to visit Mightymutts.org to read more about what we do (and to see pictures of adorable dogs of course).
When I found out that Mighty Mutts was an official charity of the NYC Half Marathon, I knew it was a challenge that I wanted to undertake. But a challenge this will certainly be, because although I love to be active in many ways, I have never run more than 4 miles in my life! So if I can train for a Half Marathon starting from nothing, while in the toughest year of Optometry School, then hopefully my friends and family can find it in them to donate to this cause!
Not everyone is capable of adopting a pet, but helping me to fundraise for Mighty Mutts will absolutely make a difference in helping these dogs find the loving home that they deserve! Thank you so much for your support :)
