BENEFITING: Humane Animal Rescue
ORGANIZER: Humane Animal Rescue
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
The Gatt Pack is "Running for their Rescue". Well, the humans are. We both will run the 5K on Saturday. Then Janice will run the half marthon on Sunday. We are dedicating our fundraising to Lacie & Lola.
Many of you know that Lacie was an Animal Rescue League alum. Rob rescued her in 1999. We celebrated Lacie's 16th birthday last year just a few short weeks before Lacie passed away. Although Lola wasn't an ARL alum, she was a rescue as well. We miss them terribly every day. Rescue is near and dear to our hearts. We are excited to once again help ARL by running and fundraising.
Pittsburgh marathon weekend usually coincides with Lacie's birthday weekend. 2016 is no different. I will run the half marathon on Lacie's birthday, May 1st.
Rob and I are grateful for each and every day that we got to spend with Lacie & Lola. They made our lives better with the unconditional love that they showered us with.
Every day ARL helps animals find their way to loving homes. Loving homes that will then ask the same question....."Who rescued who?"
We cannot thank you enough for joining us on this adventure! Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you.
Here are some of the ways ARL will use the funds that are raised:
$30 will cover the cost of micro-chipping a cat or dog.
$50 will provide low-cost spay/neuter services to a family who couldn’t otherwise afford it.
$100 will provide behavioral training for an animal to help her find a new home more quickly.
$1,000 will cover the total care for an animal that stays in our shelter for one month.
Peace, Love & Puppy Paws for all.
Janice & Rob
