Welcome to Hannah's 5K Fundraising Page
I'd taken a few years off from my MSPCA fundraising efforts but now I'm back in action! They've phased out their autumn Walk for Animals in favor of a spring 5K Run Fur Fun. I participated in the inagural race in 2016 but I want to really focus on a bold fundraising goal for 2018. The event takes place a week before my first half marathon of the year (itself a week before my second half marathon!) so it'll be a nice break from my usual long weekend training runs.
As many of you know, my poor Fluffernutter has recently had a few health scares: first was a heart murumr that required bloodwork to rule out thyroid disease and an echocardiogram to rule out heart disease, and second was a visit to the MSPCA emergency room because of symptoms of an intestinal blockage that would have required emergency surgery. Thankfully, her murmur appears to be benign, and her tummy woes were from a hairball that her body was able to address on its own.
I am so lucky that my beloved kitties are both in good health, and also that I have a job that allows me to pay for their medical treatment. I set this year's fundraising goal at $1350, which is just over the $1347.87 (ack!) that I've paid for my cats' care this year alone. Caring for animals can be really expensive, and I wanted to let my own experience of that motivate my fundraising efforts this year.
The MSPCA offers financial support for pet owners who are not as fortunate as I am, and 89 cents of every dollar donated goes directly towards caring for the critters. Your money will support not only owners who need assistance, but also animals who have been surrendered to the MSPCA, who are in their adoption centers, who are with their foster partners, and who need the advocacy and assistance of the MSPCA's law enforcement team who work to prosecute animal abusers.
I love the MSPCA (despite my fear for Fluff's health, visiting their center in Boston was a real treat to see what a sophisticated place it is!) and I love all of you for your continued support of my fundraising efforts on their behalf. No donation is too small, and if you'd prefer not to donate online I will be happy to take cash or even PayPal/Venmo donations that I can then make in your name, but with my own account.
All my love,
Please support me in the Fast and Furriest!
