BENEFITING: MARLEYS MUTTS DOG RESCUE
ORGANIZER: MARLEYS MUTTS DOG RESCUE
EVENT: 2015 Chicago Marathon
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
So I'm a couple years late on reaching my goal of running another marathon before my 40th birthday - but better late than never! Having the opportunity to raise money for Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue is just the motivation I need! A few years ago, they allowed our family to adopt Decade as a companion for our aging Mulligan, and just last month we brought home Claret (aka Pepper). I'm honored to help them help more dogs find families.
We are forever grateful for our Mulligan, who passed in October, and for the 3 short years we had with Decade, who passed in January. I know that memories of them will keep me going through the tough miles of the race.
Thanks in advance for any donation you're able to share, but most importantly, thanks for your support and encouraging words and thoughts! I appreciate you!

For the 3rd year in a row, we are running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon! This is our second year as an Official Charity Partner of the Marathon, and we are thrilled to have almost tripled the number of runners on our team!
We are SO close to finally getting our dream: The Marley's Mutts Rescue Ranch! This facility will allow us to continue Rescuing Dogs, who Rescue People! Our scope of operations will expand to enable us to offer more programs that help our community, increase our Spay & Neuter Initiative, and change countless lives!
