BENEFITING: PAWS PROVIDING ANIMAL WELFARE SERVICES
EVENT: PAWSome Winter Challenge
EVENT DATE: Jan 25, 2013
HOURS PLEDGED: 4
Imagine a typical Rochester winter day, at twenty degrees, snow falling from the sky...and sleeping on a cold concrete patio all day, all night. You have a cold, harsh metal collar around your neck and only six feet to roam. Imagine living this life, day after day., and not being able to do anything about it. It’s unimaginable, isn’t it? Yes, it is. Yet, this is the only life known to thousands of animals around the Rochester area. We, at PAWS Inc, have set a goal to change this.
The fundraiser, The PAWSome Winter Challenge, will help raise awareness of this unfortunate epidemic in our area. For just one night, participants will be putting themselves in the “paws” of the animals living in such harsh conditions.
We are a team of teachers from Hilton, NY who love animals! We love them so much that we are going to spend 4 hours outside, on a cold, January night, at Camp Eastman! We will only be dressed head to toe in our warmest clothes, but that is it. We will be joining many others in challenging ourselves to go without food, water or shelter to raise awareness for so many unfortunate animals who live 24 hours a day, 7 days a week like this.
Please considering joining our team or sponsoring one of us! All proceeds will benefit PAWS Inc. who will in turn provide basic needs (like an insulated dog house!) to many animals in the Rochester area.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
