Hello Supporters!
Some of you have heard that I will be running my first Marathon this October 13th 2019, competing in the Chicago Marathon. That’s 8 weeks from today. I have two goals* with regards to this coming accomplishment. First -- raise $2000.00 for PAWS Chicago. Second – finish in less time than twice the course record (2013 Dennis Kimetto 2:03:45). If my math is correct, and I believe that it is, I will have 4:07:30.

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!

Donate early, donate often,

*Third, less exciting, goal – Finish.
