Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! My three passions are God, my rescue dogs, and running. This year God has blessed me with the ability to run the inaugural Marine Corps 50k Marathon . Unfortunately, I had to say good bye to my old running buddy, Max after 19 years of being by my side. He ran across the rainbow bridge after 21 years. Now, my 5 year old Australian Cattle dog, Jubilee, is learning the topes to be my running partner. So, I want to use this race to raise money for the organization that started this awesome relationship.. Fairfax Animal Shelter. The Friends of Fairfax Animal Shelter not only ensures many animals find their forever homes, but they also provide resources and love for the animals while they are waiting. Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
