EVENT: 2013 GO! For A Cause
EVENT DATE: Apr 06, 2013
Hello family and friends,
I am proud to announce that I'm once again participating in the GO! St. Louis Half Marathon in support of training/enrichment programs for homeless dogs at Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
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.
Last year was Team Running Buddies' first in the GO! St. Louis Marathon, and we were able gather a team of 70 compassionate, energetic individuals - all running to help the pups. We raised an incredible $53,000!
My personal goal this year is $500, and I would be forever grateful for your support - any amount is a tremendous help. The dogs we save at Stray Rescue have survived the harsh streets to become playful, loving companions that enrich the lives of those who adopts them. Every penny donated goes directly to the shelter dogs and helps them find caring homes.
Thank you so much for your support! Your generosity has a direct impact on giving companion animals a second chance.
