I am stepping beyond myself and including the well-being of domestic and wild animals as part of my overall training plan for the 2013 City of Pgh Half Marathon. By choosing to partner with the Animal Rescue League, I will be an advocate of the mission to educate people, as well as care for and restore animals to good homes. I am running for their rescue! Will you please help me save some precious lives? There are so many ways your dollars can help them; micro-chipping a cat or dog, provide low-cost spay/neuter services to a family who cannot otherwise afford it, provide behavioral training for an animal to help them find a new home, or even cover the total care for an animal so they can stay in the shelter for a month. Please donate for this worthy and much needed cause. I am running so you don't have to!
