BENEFITING: HEART OF THE VALLEY HUMANE SOCIETY INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 20, 2015
The IRONMAN Lake Tahoe event takes place in Olympic Village, CA, where the 1960 winter Olympics were held. Renee will be traveling from Bozeman, MT and racing on September 20 in her first Ironman benefitting Heart of the Valley Animal Shelter. She will be swimming 2.4 miles, biking 112 miles and then running 26.2 miles, a full marathon. Heart of the Valley is an open-door animal shelter serving the Gallatin and Madison Valleys. Heart of the Valley is a no-kill shelter that does not euthanize for space or length of stay. Renee chose to compete for Heart of the Valley, stating "I love the Heart of the Valley! It’s nearly impossible to imagine life without our four legged kids. Shelby (6 year old Border Collie) and Kitty (18-23 year old long hair grey tabby) bring so much joy to our lives every single day. Kitty came from HOV 18 years ago and when we got her they said she was 3-5 years old. She maybe a little old lady now, but sure doesn’t act like it! So many of my friends have gone to HOV and found their faithful friends, and I see how these little guys have changed all of their lives. The fact that HOV is determined to find a home for every single adoptable animal amazes me. There seems to be the perfect human companion for every dog or cat." Please help support Heart of the Valley with a donation of $140.60 - this is how many miles Renee will be covering on September 20!
