My friend Ollie ran his first marathon in 2013. The Chicago Marathon. He ran for Team Paws. He loved animals. And volunteered at shelters when he was able, always doing what he could to help out.
Last time he ran for Team Paws, he said “All this money goes strait to PAWS and helps save animal lives. This place is really great and I love that I am able to participate under their name.”
All of my campaign funds will be donated to Team Paws in his name.
The $1,750 is due 8:30am Friday, September 18th. I will pay it either way, but it would mean hella lot to have the support of my friends and family - to honor a life well lived.
You can learn more about the organization 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.
Thank you for your support!
