BENEFITING: STRAY RESCUE OF ST LOUIS
ORGANIZER: STRAY RESCUE OF ST LOUIS
EVENT: 2015 GO! FOR A CAUSE
It's race seasons again and this year my spring half-marathon will be as part of Team Running Buddies to help raise money for one of my favorite charities: Stray Rescue! As you know this is a cause very close to my heart. I ask that you show your love for rescue dogs (and cats) in need of help.
I have chosen as training partners my buddies at the shelter. They line up and take turns to help me achieve between 10-12 miles per weekend. In return they get exercise and a belly scratch. I call it a fair exchange :)
Stray Rescue is a no-kill animal shelter dedicated to rescuing and improving the lives of homeless dogs (and some cats). The Running Buddies program provides much needed enrichment for the animals, allowing volunteers to "check out" a dog as a running or walking buddy. This exposes the dogs to nice humans, complete with affection and exercise and socialization, rendering the sweet canine quadrapeds even more appealing for adoption!
A mere $10 would be enormously helpful. The furry buddies and I will be forever grateful!
C'mon, who can say "no" to puppy eyes?
Go Team Running Buddies!
