26.2 miles for Chico!

Hello Animal Lovers!

Thank you so much for supporting me in this adventure. I am so lucky and honored to be able to run the Chicago Marathon 2022 with meaning. I am running for many reasons, but my main one is to honor my dog, Chico. He crossed the rainbow bridge in 2017 after being my best friend and sidekick for 14 years. Chico was a shelter dog that I fell in love with at first sight. I hope I can honor him by raising funds for PAWS Chicago and make all 26.2 miles count for something other than myself.

It took me a long time to grieve the loss of my Chico. During the beginning of the pandemic, I was lucky to get the opportunity to foster some dogs for another local shelter. Everyone thought I would be an immediate foster fail, including myself! Surprise, I found great joy from fostering and helping families find their match.

What I have learned is if you can adopt, foster, volunteer or donate! These animals are in need of care and loving homes. In return they give you all their love.

I would be very honored if you could help me reach my fund raising goal for PAWS Chicago. Below is a brief description of their good works they do for dogs and cats in 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 91 percent. In 2020, PAWS Chicago found loving homes for more than 4,100 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!
