Four years ago, I would run 25 km and cycle 100 km a week.  I was the fittest I had ever been.  Then work and other priorities took up my time, and the “dad bod” ensued  


After 3+ years of inactivity when having my first daughter, I was asked to help out an animal rescue organization that I have worked with on and off for the past 11 years by joining this 5 km run.


In addition to raising funds to help care for animals through my charity of choice, I also aim to have this reignite my dedication to staying fit and healthy so I can keep up with my daughters, and be a part of their lives for a long time.


It won’t be long until my daughters will want to help rescue animals as well.


Please donate any amount you can afford, as anything helps.


Thanking you in advance!


Informtion about my chosen charity:


PAWS was established in 1972 by a group of animal lovers who wanted to assist animals in need.

We proudly enforce a strict no-kill policy, while providing a unique free-roam shelter where homeless, abandoned and abused animals are given safe haven - indefinitely. We offer exceptional care to the animals in our charge that is second to none.

PAWS is the only rescue, of which we are aware, that routinely tests our cats for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus – a.k.a Feline Aids), FeLV (Feline Leukemia) and FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis) illnesses which can be life-threatening to other cats.  Because we do not want our adopters to endanger their own animal companions we incur this extra expense and effort. If any of our rescues are diagnosed with one of these diseases, we DO NOT euthanize. We arrange suitable housing on an individual basis.  Most often, these cats live full, healthy, normal lives. We would be pleased to offer additional information and to share our experiences with these special felines (most of these experiences have been of a positive nature) and would also direct you to our FAQs for more information.

PAWS has never considered any animal ‘unadoptable’ and we DO NOT give up on those with special needs. We have many wonderful success stories to prove it. PAWS spares no expense to save a life as the special souls who come to us are all individuals.  We trust you will enjoy touring our website and learning how PAWS has been going above and beyond for over 45 years.

Individual Goal: $100.00

Individual Raised so far:  $175.00
