Hello, family and friends!
I'm so excited to take on my second marathon (never thought I'd be saying this) in November 2021 in the greatest city in the world, New York.
I ran my first marathon in Chicago last October with my sister by my side for a cause I care deeply about: PAWS Chicago. With the support of my amazing family and friends, I raised $1,250 for PAWS in 2019, an incredible organization that works tirelessly to make sure every homeless cat or dog in Chicago finds their forever home. I began volunteering for PAWS in 2017 and I wholeheartedly believe that this organization does it better than any other rescue shelter I know.
A little bit about PAWS Chicago: they are dedicated to building No Kill communities 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.
Every dollar counts towards my goal of $3,000. Thank you for your support!
PS - While I was originally supposed to run the NYC Marathon this November, the race was cancelled due to COVID-19. In honor of PAWS and all the homeless dogs and cats, I'll be running a half marathon on my own on November 28. If you'd like to virtually follow along on my run, let me know! :)
