Welcome Supporters!

Many of you may have come to this page thinking,

"Eric, you run? I had no idea."

Trust me, I thought the same thing. But some of you are thinking,

"Eric, you set a huge goal for yourself with immense and long-lasting benefits that can only be achieved with long-term planning and execution which can admittedly be a challenge for anyone unless they have the aid of their community and rigorous scheduling? Yeah, that tracks."

With that, I will be running the 2019 Chicago Marathon with the good people and pets of PAWS Chicago! Ta-daaa!

Unfortunately, they won't just let me open a few cans for them and call it a day. I need to raise $1750 to be a part of the action. I need a nice round number that's easy to say in an elevator speech, so I'm setting my stretch goal to $2000. With your help, I'm certain we can extend that goal even further by race time.

Thank you in advance for your donations and support. I was inspired last year by my wife, Rachel, who decided to run the 2018 Chicago Triathlon. It was incredible to watch her on her journey, and I was so proud on the day of the race. It will be a thrill to go on my own quest, to share my milestones along the way, and perhaps to inspire others to climb their own mountain.

That's enough metaphors for now. Time to stretch!

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.

All the best,

A little about PAWS Chicago---

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.

Thank you for your support!
