BENEFITING: Humane Animal Rescue
ORGANIZER: Humane Animal Rescue
EVENT DATE: May 03, 2015
I have partnered with the Animal rescue league and shelter of W. Penn ( Pittsburgh) in an effort to raise $ for their shelter. While i enjoy running ( and the calorie intake afterwards) I love helping animals more. It doesn't take much to change the life of an abused/abandoned/homeless animals and I am hoping that you take this challenge with me and help me to help them. While i understand this isn't "local" i hope that you will be moved by the stories and photos on their site and understand that we are all connected in this vast universe. I pledged to do this before i had even run 3 miles outdoors, and while i have run races in the past, a series of injuries had me sidelined, depleted and full of self doubt. But I WILL DO THIS, and I would love your support... Here of some examples of how funds will be used.
Here are some of the ways we'll use the funds you raise:
$30 will cover the cost of micro-chipping a cat or dog.
$50 will provide low-cost spay/neuter services to a family who couldn’t otherwise afford it.
$100 will provide behavioral training for an animal to help her find a new home more quickly.
$1,000 will cover the total care for an animal that stays in our shelter for one month. and check them out on www.charitynavigator.org. a very highly rated non profit. $ goes to animals, not admin..
so please... even $1 a mile gets me to my goal of $1000
