Save the Animals!

Hey ya'll!

Animals + running are two of my three favorite things (with the 3rd being chicken nuggets). This year, I'm teaming with the Chicago Marathon and PAWS Chicago to raise money for their NO KILL animal shelter. As many of you know, this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart.

In case you were wondering, this is a Honey approved charity.

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.

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. My fundraising goal is $1,750.00. Any amount would help me reach my goal and help to save many homeless animals in Chicago.

Thank you for your support!
