I Need Your Help

July 6, 2011 / Personal / 2 Comments


Say “hello” to my little sweet boy, Dax!

I adopted Dax from a dog rescue group at Petsmart in 2008. He has everything I can possibly ask for in a dog and I love him dearly. If you really know me, you know Dax is more than just a dog to me. He is a very important part of my life and this led me to make a goal I’ve never made before—running a half marathon and fundraising.

On October 30, 2011 I will be running in the 2011 Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon as a member of Team ASPCA, a national fundraising and marathon training program. I am excited to be participating in the inaugural season of Team ASPCA and honored to be raising the awareness and the much needed funding to support the ASPCA‘s programs.

Your donation will help the ASPCA continue to provide local and national leadership in three key areas: caring for pets and pet parents, providing positive outcomes for at-risk animals and serving victims of animal cruelty. The ASPCA is very important to me and I appreciate your help as we fight to end animal cruelty, homelessness, and neglect.

Please visit my fundraising page and support me by making a donation.  Please help me make a positive impact in the lives of animals living in my community!

I need to raise at least $1,000 to run in the half marathon. Every dollar counts and even the smallest donations will be greatly appreciated. If you are not in a situation where you can support me financially, I understand. I would really appreciate it if you could at least share this blog post or my fundraising page with other people who may be able to help.

I’ve been training every week for the half marathon and am looking forward to cross the finish line!

As this is my first time fundraising and participating in a half marathon, I need all the support I can possibly get from family, friends, and everyone else.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and helping me support an organization that does so much for animals!
