I’ve loved animals for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid I used to say, “when I grow up I want to own a zoo.” Fitness has also played a huge role in my life through competing in sports, becoming a personal trainer and now running races and doing Crossfit. In 2015, my wife and I had the privilege of rescuing two amazing fur babies, Aurora (the black lab mix) and Gunner (the beagle mix). The joy these two pups have brought us is immeasurable, and I think if you asked them they would say that they’re living their best lives. That’s why I could not think of a better cause to support in my first Major Marathon. With PAWS Chicago, I am combining two things I love, fitness and fur babies, and I’m hoping that the money I raise will help another pup find his/her FURever home. Thank you for joining me on this journey. #Fitnessandfurbabies

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.

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!
