EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2013

THE STORY:

Since I couldn't decide on one animal charity to run for, I have picked two. Now, you only have to select one and pick an amount to help our furry friends get the medical help and forever homes they need.

I'm calling this year's fund-raiser "Putting My Robotic Ankles to Good Use" because as most of you know, I have had both of my ankles reconstructed -- most recently, in 2011. It has taken a lot for me to get running again and so in exchange for the gift of the ability to still be able to run, I figured I would give something back.

Each time I run, I take on a new challenge. And since most of you know that I am an animal lover so I figured what better way to mark the craziness of running the 2013 ING NYC Marathon than to raise money for animals in need.

One of the two Maryland-based animal charities I'd like you to consider this year is Dogs XL Rescue, which specializes in finding homes for large dogs (typically 50lbs+). Large dogs are often first to be put to sleep in shelters because medical treatment and food for large dogs is more expensive than for small dogs. Large dogs also take up more space at the shelter and on transports to adoptive families.

Our newest puppy, Maris, is a lab/terrier mix, who was rescued by Dogs XL Rescue along with her mom and two sisters from a high-kill shelter down south.

This organisation and its volunteers run totally off of donations. They rescue animals living in deplorable conditions, dogs who have been abused or abandoned and those who's time on earth is limited due to overcrowded shelters. Once given their "ride to freedom" Dogs XL Rescue provides medical treatment to the injured, vaccinations and safety while placing them with fosters and matching dogs with their furever homes.

Without Dogs XL Rescue, our Maris would likely have been a statistic. Your donations can help to ensure more animals like her are saved.
