Welcome Supporters!

I am running the Chicago Marathon with Team PAWS in 2019. I found this charity to be very near and dear to my heart. I knew that saving the lives of pups and kitty's was what this marathon was going to be about. This will be my second time running the marathon and my FIRST time raising money for charity.

On Sept. 1 2017, my husband and I decided to adopt a puppy because we knew that we were missing that piece to our puzzle. Our little fur baby, Cali (a boxer-terrier-and who knows what else mix) brings so much joy to us everyday and she doesn't know how lucky she is! Not sure what our lives would be like without her in it because the cuddles are endless and the wiggle butt when we come home is the absolute best! As you can see in my profile picture, Cali has a lot of energy and she loves to go on runs with her mom. She will sure be on quite a few training runs with me this summer!

Please take a moment to read about PAWS Chicago below:

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.

Tell me what mile and I will run in honor of someone or something. On race day watch me on Instagram to see me run that mile. I can not wait to run for 26 very special honors!
Provide your mile and your honor in your donation notes!**

Thank you for your support!

Karen (and my fur baby Cali)
