Welcome Friends, Family and Collegues!

This is my 8th year on Team PAWS Chicago and this year is going to be extremely special to me. I will be doing my first IRONMAN 140.6 in Lake Placid, New York on July 22, 2018. For those of you unfamiliar with IRONMAN's this race consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and a 26.2 mile run.

I have a life long passion for rescuing animals and I am fortunate enough to get to partner with one of the best charities in the nation to do this. PAWS is a Charity Navigator 4 star charity and with it's cageless environment and no-kill philosophy it is a perfect fit for my mission. Many of you are returning donors many years over, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. For those of you that are new, thank you in advance. I do not do this just for a bib to a race and it is not a charity picked at random. This is truly my love so thank you for helping me speak for those that cannot speak for themselves.

PAWS Chicago is dedicated to building No Kill communities – starting with a No Kill Chicago – where all healthy and treatable pets are saved. Since PAWS Chicago’s founding in 1997, the number of homeless animals euthanized per year in Chicago has dropped more than 80 percent. In 2016, PAWS Chicago found loving homes for more than 5,100 homeless pets. But there is more work to be done and your generosity is crucial to this effort.

Please consider supporting me by making a donation and helping PAWS Chicago provide vital medical care, food and shelter to thousands of homeless pets this year. PAWS receives no government funding and relies solely on people like you to help provide continued care for Chicago's homeless animals.

Your support will allow us to build a truly humane and compassionate community, one pet at a time. Please consider donating to my cause.

If you are feeling extra generous, please consider sharing my page with your network or check with your employer if they will match your donation to make the most out of your generosity.

Thank you for your support!

Remember DO NOT SHOP, ADOPT!!!
