This October I will be running in the Portland Marathon to raise awareness for the cheetah's race for survival and the Cheetah Conservation Fund's efforts to save them. I would greatly appreciate your support in this amazing opportunity to help protect one of the world's most magnificent species, the greatest symbol of running!
