Running to raise awareness and help animals

Running 13.1 miles is nothing compared to the suffering that so many animals endure every day, all around the world. I care deeply about the welfare and rights of all animals, from dogs and cats who are neglected or discarded by their "guardians;" to chickens, turkeys, cows, and pigs exploited for their meat, milk, or eggs; to mice used in medical experiments; to elephants mistreated in circuses.

Please help me raise money to support PETA's programs that work to help animals through such methods as awareness-raising, legislative changes, direct rescue of animals, and more.

Hey everyone!

I wanted to post one final message to thank you all so much for donating to help me raise money for animals through PETA Pack. Thanks to you we raised $880, and I couldn't be more thrilled. :) That thought definitely kept me going during the last three miles of the half marathon, when I was really tired and just wanted to be done.

That said, here are my results: 2:10:11.2 (9:56 pace), placing 1264 out of 2709 half-marathon runners.

Thanks again, and please continue to help animals in whatever way you can!
