I am proud to announce that I'm once again participating in the GO! St. Louis Half Marathon to raise money for Stray Rescue of St. Louis, http://strayrescue.org/.
The run this year will be emotionally challenging because I am running in memory of Maximus. Maxie was such an important part of our family. Without a moment’s hesitation, we adopted him then reorganized our schedule, our home and our lives to make sure he was safe and was finally cared for in the manner he deserved. He taught me a great deal about patience, the power of hope and the depth of unconditional love.
I'll be running with Stray Rescue's Team Running Buddies. The Running Buddies Program at Stray Rescue is an enrichment program where people can visit the shelter, sign in, and "check out" a dog as a running buddy. This provides essential enrichment for shelter dogs, making them more adoptable through exercise and socialization. It also highlights and strengthens the incredible human/dog bond.
My personal goal this year is to raise at least $500. I would be forever grateful for your support - any amount is a tremendous help. Every penny donated goes directly to the shelter dogs and helps them find caring homes. I know firsthand about the great work this organization does. Without Stray Rescue, Max never would have been saved from deplorable living conditions.
If you do not feel comfortable donating online, let me know. You can give me money or mail me a check and I will complete the online form for you.
Thank you so much for your support! Your generosity has a direct impact on giving dogs like Maximus a second chance.
Peace and love, Tamara (also known as Maxie’s Lady Mom)
