ORGANIZER: SOUTH SUBURBAN HUMANE SOCIETY
EVENT: 2016 Shamrock Shuffle 8K
EVENT DATE: Apr 03, 2016
On April 3rd, I will be running the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8k to support my favorite 501c3 organization, South Suburban Humane Society. This shelter has saved the lives of so many animals and prides themselves in setting a high standard for humane practice. In 2015, SSHS smashed the records for their entire 45 year history by saving 2,804 animals! This includes ZERO euthanasias for space-related issues. None of this could have been achieved without the strong leadership of Emily Klehm, shelter CEO, the knowledgeable and caring staff that keep the facility running smoothly, and all of the selfless volunteers that give their time and resources to the animals.
This year, for my 35th birthday, I am asking that you PLEASE support my shuffle for the shelter by donating toward my goal of $500. This amount can make a big difference in the lives of MANY of the shelter's animals and together we can achieve even bigger, better statistics for 2016! If you know anything about me, you know how much love I have for my little shelter that could, so for each donation I receive (of any denomination) I will write the name of one SSHS animal on the leggings I wear on race day! So please, donate today and make my 35th birthday the most memorable one by far!
