Welcome to my fundraising page for The Rescue Run 5K!
On September 28, 2014 I will be running for rescue at the second annual Rescue Run 5K in Philadelphia. Help me support The Monster Milers, Philadelphia’s shelter dog running, all-volunteer organization by making a donation. The process is fast, easy, and secure. I truly appreciate any support you can provide. It will benefit a great cause!
If you can’t make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter. Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page.
Thanks so much for your generosity! Also, the public is invited to the race, so please come cheer for me on race day. Adoptable dogs from over ten local shelters and rescues will be on-site meeting and greeting runners and spectators. Everyone will be able to learn more about volunteering at local shelters. I’d love to see you there.
