BENEFITING: Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am running in this year’s NYC Marathon on November 6 to benefit Miles for Paws – a charity supporting The Mayor's Alliance for Animals.
Animal welfare has been an issue forever near and dear to my heart. When I lived in Manhattan, I was an avid volunteer for various organizations that helped better the lives of animals is some way or another. Exercise has also always been an integral part of my life and my game plan for keeping sane with two kids, two dogs, a cat and back-to-back travel sports to attend for my middle-schoolers.
Having run an upstate NY marathon and adopted a special-needs dog from a Harlem shelter in 1997, I couldn’t think of a better way to do something for myself than to combine two things I love. I have absolutely no lofty time goals and would be thrilled to finish in under 5 hours.
Since the inception of the Alliance, more than a quarter-million animals have been saved. While this is tremendous progress, more work is yet to be done, and more lives are yet to be spared.
Please help me raise money for NYC's shelter pets through this website https://www.crowdrise.com/mayorsallianceanimalsnyc2016/fundraiser/staceygallagher-escoffery (you can even go one step further and help us fundraise by clicking the FUNDRAISE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN button.
