BENEFITING: North Shore Animal League
On Oct. 6, 2015, longtime West Hempstead L.I., resident Gabriel Cordell will begin his four-day Roll For North Shore Animal League America. Using a manual wheelchair fueled only by muscle and will, Gabriel will roll 122 miles across Long Island to raise money for the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. The journey will begin at the famous Montauk Lighthouse and finish on Oct. 9 at Animal League America’s Port Washington, N.Y., campus.
Cheer Gabriel Cordell on as he rolls in to the half-way point of his journey!
We're celebrating with a special Pet adoption Event on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 from 4pm to 6pm at the Middle Country Library, 101 Eastwood Boulevard, Centereach, NY. Save 25% Off Adoption Fees.
• Since he was paralyzed in a car accident 23 years ago, Gabriel has dedicated himself to using that life-changing event to enrich the lives of others. This will not be the first time Gabriel rolled for a cause, but it will be the first time his efforts will help save the lives of homeless dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens. Along with raising funds to support our four-legged friends, Gabriel and North Shore Animal League America hope that this unique event will focus attention on the needs of shelter pets across the country and around the globe!
• Gabriel’s odyssey will raise money to support the no-kill mission of this pioneering organization, which, since its founding in 1944, has placed more than 1,000,000 companion animals into responsible, loving homes. Specifically, these funds will further the construction of Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, a state-of-the-art addition to our Long Island campus. This 15,000-square-foot facility will accomplish two goals: It will save the lives of countless cats and kittens while freeing up space so we can rescue even more dogs and puppies.
• “I’m a Long Island boy through and through,” Gabriel says. “It doesn’t matter where I live or where I am in the world, Long Island will always be home. I want to do something to give back to one of its most well respected organizations. North Shore Animal League America means so much to so many people and pets everywhere.”
Join Gabriel Cordell and North Shore Animal League America in this remarkable journey to help homeless pets find the families and futures they deserve.
