EVENT DATE: Apr 06, 2013
To all of my family and friends,
Thank you for visiting my page! This is my second year fundraising for Team Running Buddies, and I'll be running the 1/2 marathon this year. I contemplated running the whole marathon again, but decided I would rather devote more of my training days to running with the dogs at the shelter! This has become the most meaningful contribution I can make.
I've been running with the shelter dogs as a part of the Running Buddies Enrichment Program on a regular basis since last March. The program allows participants to stop by the shelter and sign out a dog to run with that day. This helps the shelter dogs become more adoptable through exercise, socialization, and also provides the runner with a unique oportunity for a fun and more playful running experience. There are no words to describe how meaningful this has been for me... I don't know who is getting more enrichment, me or the dogs!
Last year Stray Rescue was the top GO! St. Louis fundraising charity at $53,000. Every penny donated goes directly to the shelter dogs and helps them find caring, loving homes. My goal this year is $500...any amount donated would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for your support ~ Stray Rescue is an amazing organization giving so many homeless animals the chance they deserve.
