I am going to run the 2017 NEW YORK CITY MARATHON!!
If you know me, then you know that I recently ran the Los Angeles Marathon in order to raise funds for Angel City Pit Bulls. You also know that animal welfare is a cause that I care deeply about. So, on Sunday November 5th, I'm going to run another marathon, this time, the NEW YORK CITY MARATHON! And because animal welfare is a national issue, I'll be running to raise funds for NYC based animal welfare non-profit, MR. BONES & CO.
Founded in 2013, Mr. Bones & Co., is an all-volunteer based 501(c)3 animal welfare non-profit supporting animal rescue and advocacy in New York City, as well as on a national and global level. Their main function is canine rescue, via One Lucky Pup, their signature rescue, rehabilitation and adoption program. While they emphasize Pit Bull rescue, they accept all breeds into their program. OLP specializes in dogs facing extraordinary challenges, whether it be extensive emergency veterinary care/surgery, unfair breed discrimination or those languishing in municipal shelters. MBC also provides support to existing shelters and rescue groups via outreach initiatives including spay/neuter events, fundraising, and adoption support. They award numerous grants each year for a variety of services; pet care and emergency assistance to low income families, adoption training to help harder to place dogs find homes, and assistance to selfless animal rescuers doing what they can on their own. And they believe animal welfare is a community effort and work hard to be part of the bigger picture.
Please consider making a donation towards my fundraising goal. No amount is too small and will help support an amazing organization. And, if you can't make a donation at this point, then please help me reach my goal by sharing this page with your friends or anyone who might be interested in the cause of animal welfare.
Thank you!!! And thanks so much for your generosity!!!
