Thank you for visiting my fundraiser page for Team Animal League!
I'm running the 2017 Tough Mudder in support of North Shore Animal League America and all the homeless animals they rescue, nurture and adopt into loving, responsible homes.
When I discovered Animal League America on the Tough Mudder fundraising list, I was thrilled, because their organization is the reason why I have my little pup, Bear, in my life today. I was able to rescue my dog, who was born blind, from a kill shelter. Having the opportunity to give this pup a second chance has taught me so much!
Being born with a leg disability myself, I have struggled through many challenging events in my life, and I had to work harder than most to succeed. No matter how many times I have fallen, both literally and figuratively, I got back up and tried even harder. From the moment I rescued Bear, my entire world has changed. I had faith that my blind puppy could do anything he set his mind to, even when others said it was impossible, and he proved me right beyond my wildest imagination. To this day, my dog and I train and encourage each other to become stronger, together, and work to accomplish things that no one else believed we could.
Now, I want to raise money through Tough Mudder to benefit no-kill animal shelters around the world. You can help me cross the finish line by donating to my run today. Whatever you can give is sincerely appreciated and will go towards saving nearly 18,000 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens every year.
I hope you'll join me on this journey and spread the word to your family and friends.
I've got my rescue on, do you? Please, donate today!
