BENEFITING: North Shore Animal League
ORGANIZER: North Shore Animal League
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
Recently Denice and I lost our Szip. Our sweet, sweet boy. Szip wasn't in our family, Szip WAS family. We had the unbelievable luck to find Szip thanks to the North Shore Animal League. North Shore is a no kill shelter that rescued Szip from being euthanized at his first shelter. I know running will never allow me another one of his incredible kisses, be graced by his spirited butt dances, laugh as his curly tail seemed to act as a periscope at family dinners, or be offered a belly to scratch. But running brings me solace and allows me to meditate on my fortune to have had Szip in my life. Raising money to help North Shore and their incredible work is the very least I can do. I'll forever be saddened by his passing, but I hope my fundraiser will help someone else find their "Szip". On November 4th I run the NYC Marathon to honor my "Bubba" (<-- one of like 20 nicknames we had for Szip). Here's the official North Shore info...
The mission of the North Shore Animal League is to build our hands-on rescue, rehabilitation and adoption efforts to save the lives of as many companion animals as possible - one at a time - and promote education to increase shelter adoptions, reduce animal cruelty and advance the highest standards in animal welfare. It is our vision to create a world where all companion animals find compassionate, permanent homes to end animal cruelty and euthanasia.
