I'm calling on you, my faithful reader(s) to help me save some lives. Please help me get to the start line and give a chance for stray animals to find some forever homes. Together, we can do it!
For the second year in a row, I have the privilege of running the Chicago Marathon on behalf of PAWS Chicago, the city's largest "no-kill shelter." If you know anything about me, you know: I love running, I love animals and I LOVE Chicago. So, I jumped at the chance when offered the opportunity to support these guys again.
This year, I have been asked to not only participate as a runner, but also as a Shepherd, which is a leadership position that mentors new Team PAWS members, from running to fundraising, and everything in between.
Please join me in helping save the lives of our furry friends. With your donation, we can give those lovable critters a forever home. For those who have already donated, a heartfelt "thank you."
As you may know, tomorrow, June 4th, is National Running Day. To some, it's a holiday, however to most of us, it's just another day to log miles.
So, I'm going to do more.
A lot of you know, I am running the Chicago Marathon for Team PAWS, which supports PAWS Chicago, a no-kill shelter in Chicago. My fundraising has been going pretty well, and I'm appreciative for those who have already donated in service to my effort.
Now, I plan to take it up a notch. So, here's what I'm proposing...
Tomorrow, I am going on a six mile run for National Running Day, and during that run I'm asking you to donate to my Team PAWS donation page. At the end of my run, whatever amount has been donated in that time, I will match (up to $300). So, you guys give $200, I'll throw in another $200 to the effort.
Please help me help those who need it.
I will post on my Facebook/Twitter channels when I begin and finish my run, so you know when to donate. Below is a link to my Team PAWS page.
