BENEFITING: Friends of the Attleboro Animal Shelter
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2012
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for my race to benefit Friends of the Attleboro Animal Shelter (FAAS). For anyone that knows me, giving back to the community and volunteering is a huge part of who I am and what I believe in.
In the past I have been involved with many events that raised money for a number or excellent charities and this race is no different. FAAS is a wonderful organization that goes above and beyond to ensure that all of the 'fur kids' are given the best care and find the perfect forever home. Below you can find a brief description of the organization:
"The Friends of Attleboro Animal Shelter (FAAS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are an all-volunteer organization, who donates our time and hearts to the Cats and Dogs in Attleboro and surrounding communities. We are committed to nurturing and promoting the animal-human bond and creating a community where our relationship with companion animals is guided by compassion. Our dedication and commitment is achieved through adoptions, community awareness, fostering and caring for companion animals until loving homes can be found."
While volunteering weekly at the shelter, I have seen firsthand how amazing the volunteers and animals truly are. I am honored to be a part of such a great organization and love every minute that I spend at the animal shelter. My goal for this race is to not only raise money for this charity, but also to raise awareness to the amazing commitment the organization has to the surrounding community and the animals. Like many charitable organizations, FAAS relies on generous donations and money raised at various fundraising events in order to continue caring for these wonderful dogs and cats. I realize that we are experiencing some tough economic times and any donations would be greatly appreciated and put to great use. To show how much this organization means to me and how much I appreciate your generosity, I will donate an additional10% of the total amount raised (total amount on this page on October 13, 2012). My goal is to raise $1,000 by the race, but I am confident that we can exceed that goal before October 13.
Please visit the FAAS website and Facebook page to view new pictures and updates on the adoptable dogs and cats! Also, stay tuned, I will updating this page periodically with new photos of the volunteers and animals!
Thanks again and let the training begin!
