BENEFITING: STRAY RESCUE OF ST LOUIS
ORGANIZER: STRAY RESCUE OF ST LOUIS
EVENT: 2014 GO! FOR A CAUSE
EVENT DATE: Apr 06, 2014
Welcome to this year's snazzy (and user-friendly) fundraising page for my efforts to raise piles of dollars (at least $500) for Stray Rescue as part of Team Running Buddies! You've been waiting around for months and months for another chance to show your love for rescue dogs (and cats) and now it's here!
Last year, I ran the 5K, and boy, was that challenging. This year, however, I've gone a little crazy and signed up for the, ah, half marathon for the GO! St. Louis Family & Fitness Weekend in April, 2014. I mean, after all, we have TWO dogs now, so obviously now I have to run farther. Or further. Whatever. It's more miles.
And it's a worthy cause to support - Stray Rescue is, you might remember, an impressively compassionate no-kill animal shelter dedicated to rescuing and improving the lives of homeless dogs (and some cats). The Running Buddies program provides much needed enrichment for the animals, allowing volunteers to "check out" a dog as a running or walking buddy. This exposes the dogs to nice humans, complete with affection and exercise and socialization, rendering the sweet canine quadrapeds even more appealing for adoption!
Now's your chance to support this great place once again! Seriously, you don't have to rob a bank. In fact, please don't rob a bank. A mere $10 would be enormously helpful. (So, maybe just raid your piggy bank.) The furry critters and I will be infinitely grateful for any support you can muster up!
C'mon, how can you say no to those adorable faces?
Go Team Running Buddies!
