BENEFITING: Humane Society Silicon Valley
EVENT DATE: Jul 31, 2011
This coming July, I plan on completing my third San Francisco half-marathon. In the past, I honestly never thought about how easy it would be to use my run as a catalyst to raise support and awareness of a cause. This summer will be different.
Ive decided to dedicate my 13.1 miles towards raising money towards helping animals in need through the Humane Society of Silicon Valley. This organization is geared towards helping all animals, under all circumstances. This includes efforts in eradicating domestic abuse and cruelty towards pets, abuses towards wildlife, and the inhumane treatment of factory bred animals.
I thought I was pretty aware of how many animals out there are family-less and sitting in a small, gray kennel somewhere. But then I actually went to the pound one day (just the local humane society), and the amount of abandoned or lost pets is staggering.
Please help me in supporting this invaluable organization that helps protect animals that are not able to protect themselves.
