In 2017 I finished the NYC marathon, when I finally meet up with my husband and best friend at the finish the first thing out of my mouth was...I have to do that again. So here we are 3 years later, I will be 50 in January and 2020 will be the 50th running of the NYC marathon....it seems like fate. Marathon's are hard...the time commitment, time away from your family, the early morning long runs in the summer to beat the heat and let's not forget..the wear and tear on your body.
This will more than likely be my last marathon, focusing more on my new passion trails and sticking to lower distances...let's face it, I'm not getting any younger. So what better way to celebrate but with the NYC marathon and my favorite charity, PAWS of 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 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.
Thank you for your support!
