BENEFITING: Kitten Rescue

EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2013

Leslie Rowen


A journey of a thousand miles (or in this case 26.2 miles) must begin with a single step.  

After a long hiatus of over 10 years, during which time I had gotten heavily involved in rescuing animals, neglecting all other aspects of my life.  I had a wake up call and I started exercising again. I have decided I want to do something active which would benefit a lifelong passion of mine - helping animals - as they  cannot speak for themselves.  What better way to merge the two is there than running a marathon to benefit animal rescue. I started exercising in March 2011, barely able to walk a mile. I am now able to run/walk (or as I affectionately call it "wogging" = walking and jogging) 12 miles. So I know that a goal of 26.2 miles by next March is reachable. 

When I saw what Minoo, the organizer of this event had done in 2011 by running a marathon when L.A. was having one of its worse storms ever, I thought if she can do that then so can I.  So while the big day is still many months away, I ask you to sponsor me for the 2012 Honda LA Marathon. Whether it be $5, $25, $50, $100 or even $500 as every little bit helps.  The fuel that keeps me going is knowing that I have your support, and that as a result, animals' lives will be saved.

Every penny that goes to Kitten Rescue is spent on the cats (and dogs). Kitten Rescue is one of the most deserving volunteer-run, non-profit organizations in the Los Angeles area and is really making a difference. Rest assured that your donation will be well spent for one purpose and one purpose only: to save the lives of animals who may otherwise not have a chance to live.

So, humbly I ask: please sponsor my upcoming participation in the 2012 Honda LA Marathon by clicking "DONATE" on this page. After you have donated, you can return to the TEAM'S MAIN PAGE if you wish to see the total amount raised by the entire team so far!

Thank you for giving me your support and love, and thank you for giving them a chance to live.

For the animals,
