This year I am trying to raise money for Champaign County Humane Soceity by running in the Illinois Half Marathon. This is my second time running a half marathon and I couldn't think of a better reason or organization to run for. CCHS is a place full of amazing people who really care for animals. You can find more details here - http://www.cuhumane.org/AboutUs/AboutCCHS.aspx
Also they have some of the cutest pets up for adoption. I have a modest goal of raising 300$, but I will be glad for being able to raise anything more.
Just to give an idea of what your money will be used for - 2500$ is the cost of keeping the shelter open for one whole day!
Spay/Neuter 15 Animals or
Feed all shelter animals for TWO weeks or
Keep the shelter open for 4 hours or
Feed kittens and puppies bottles and formula for SIX months.
