BENEFITING: MOLLYS MUTTS AND MEOWS

EVENT: 2014 TCS New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014

Beverly Benton

THE STORY:

My goal is to raise $100 for each mile of the marathon. 26.2 miles is a long way to run!  Help me make it count!

*Donate at least $26.20 and your pet's name will be added to my race day jersey.  What a great way to honor your pet!*   (Be sure to list your pet's name in your donation info.  Or email me at maxwellton@gmail.com with the name information.)

Donate $100 or more and get up to 5 pets names on my jersey. If you don't have a pet, then I'll add your name! Feel free to honor any pet or person you'd like.

NYC Marathon 2014 will have the world's best runners and your pet's name will be there for the ride!   The race will be shown on ESPN, WABC-TV and streaming for mobile devices. (See schedule at bottom of page)

THE REASON I AM FUNDRAISING:

In Southern California animal shelters, approximately 800 dogs and cats are euthanized EVERY DAY.

Emerson -- the little guy in the photos -- was on Death Row when he was rescued from a Los Angeles-area shelter by Molly's Mutts & Meows.

Emerson had been confiscated as *evidence* in a case of extreme animal neglect and discarded at a KILL shelter once the case was closed. (Look at the second photo on his profile. That's what he looked like when he was rescued!)

I met Emerson at an adoption event and it was love at first underbite!
We shared many great adventures together.
Sadly, Emerson earned his angel wings in 2010. I miss him every single day.

Emerson's favorite activity was RUNNING. I am going to honor his memory by running the NEW YORK CITY Marathon on November 2nd by raising much-needed funds for MOLLY'S MUTTS AND MEOWS.

MOLLY'S MUTTS AND MEOWS is a non-profit, ALL-VOLUNTEER rescue organization whose goal is to help dogs and cats from Los Angeles-area shelters find loving, forever homes. These folks work miracles day in, day out. They pay for vet and dental care, and training, if needed. They work miracles, large and small. This takes MONEY!!

YOU can help make a miracle happen by making a donation today.
Just click the orange *DONATE* button. Your gift is tax-deductible.

Your generosity is a life-saver.

Another little "Emerson" is waiting to be saved. Will you be the one to help?
THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION!!
