Let's Support a Great (And Fuzzy) Cause!

The marathon bombings on April 15th, 2013 changed the face of running forever. In light of this incredible tragedy, everyone in the city and runners across the country united to show the world that we are #BostonStrong. This incredible community was the main inspiration for me to qualify and train for the historic 2014 Boston marathon.

After the attacks, a major comfort was my fur baby, Lady BunBun. Throughout a range of emotions from sadness to anger, my mini-lop showed unconditional love and was a incredible companion in a dark time. On a broader reaching scale, Comfort Animal teams from the MSPCA were deployed in Boston following the Marathon bombings to visit hospitalized victims, college students, running clubs, and many other affected members of the community.

Now is my turn to repay the favor. We can be #BostonStrong for the animals! Not all animals are as fortunate as Lady BunBun. The statistics on animal cruelty and abuse are staggering. Over 30 million animals in the U.S. die each year from cruelty, neglect, and exploitation. The mission of the MSPCA-Angell is to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work for a just and compassionate society.

Let's make my running the 2014 Marathon mean something more than 26.2 miles. Please support this awesome cause and a proud city!

ABOUT THE MSPCA:

The MSPCA-Angell is a national and international leader in animal protection and veterinary medicine and provides direct hands-on care for thousands of animals each year. Founded in 1868, they are the second-oldest humane society in the United States. Services include animal protection and adoption, advocacy, humane education, law enforcement, and world-class veterinary care.

The MSPCA-Angell is a private, nonprofit organization. They do NOT receive any government funding nor are funded or operated by any national humane organization. The MSPCA-Angell relies solely on the support and contributions of individuals who care about animals.

Who is MELISSA?

I have been a runner since I was 12 and an animal lover since birth. This will be my fifth marathon and second time at Boston. I also enjoy half marathons (10 under my belt) and any costume run (Batman is a favorite!). When I'm not running as Batman, I am a graduate student at Harvard completing my PhD in Biology. Running has always been a joy in my life, and I cannot wait for the opportunity to join so many fellow runners at the 2014 Marathon!

Who is LADY BUNBUN?

As soon as I saw this mini-lop in 2010, I knew we were destined to be best buds. Due to her spunky personality and panda-like features, I rushed to the MSPCA right after she was available for adoption. Every since, it has been a match made in heaven. Despite her charismatic and lively personality, Lady BunBun did not always have an easy life. She had a major dental disease for the past few years that resulted in difficulty eating and much pain for our furry friend. Due to the perseverance and incredible care of the Angell hospital staff, Lady BunBun has recovered to full health after multiple surgeries and is back to her happy, binky rabbit self (though let's admit it, she can totally be a diva).

The MSPCA has been a family to me. Running in support of this amazing cause is the least that I can do!

The normal essay needs to have an introduction, a minimum of 3 body paragraphs, plus a conclusion. The only catch is that, there is absolutely no guarantee in the event the group you have selected is the best and the most cost-effective among others. Your articles published on various directories catch attention of online readers.
