BENEFITING: WARRIOR DOG FOUNDATION
For the last 5 years, I have been raising money to help bring attention to Military War Dogs, provide care packages and help get them home by asking people to donate instead of giving birthday and Christmas gifts. In 2013, I started Miles For Military Dogs as way to raise more money and challenge myself as these warriors are challenged everyday. MFMD works like this-I run a mile for every dollar raised over a six month period. Thanks to the generosity of many people, I have raised almost $900 over the past two summers. This year Miles For Military Dogs is raising money for our 4-legged heroes when they return home. Warrior Dog Foundation helps to transition Special Forces Operations dogs from an operational environment into their new life as "civilians". In a state-of-the-art kennel facility, each individual SOF K-9 is cared for with dignity and grace, including both mental and physical rehabilitation for the rest of their lives. In addition, Warrior Dog Foundation strives to educate the public on the importance of K-9s in the combat environment, and showcase the level of sacrifice these dogs give in support of our troops. Please support me as I run to support our unsung military heroes.
