5K for for Animals and PETA
Hello, my name is Andrea Zufelt and I am participating in the 5K "Run Thru the Rapids" on October 18, 2014. I would like to raise a personal goal of $250 (or more if possible) to donate to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). Now, many of you who know me, know that I have an immense love for animals. I have joined the PetaPack to help raise money for rescues and investigations of abused animals and animal cruelty. While PETA is having their 5K/10K in November, it is in California (and if I had money to go to California to run, I would just give $250 to PETA :) ). So I have chosen a local race to participate in, and to attach my PETA donations.
Now, some of you who know me are probably thinking, "you are going to run a 5K????? Believe me, when I made this decision I was surprised I had followed through. But, I am using this as another goal to work towards. It has been almost 4 months after my bariatric procedure, and I feel fabulous. I was athletic growing up (soccer and swim team), and loved it. I want to get back into things again, and this is what I am going to do!
So, I ask for your support. Whether it is $5 or $25 or more, donate to PETA in support for all they do for all animals, learn more about their cause (sometimes it is not ALWAYS about being vegetarian or vegan), understand how animal products make their way to your home, and be more conscious about healthier, more humane options. And lastly, to support me in my goal.
Much love. Thank you!
