Paws Chicago virtual 5k

One hundred percent of the race registration fee for this event will benefit PAWS Chicago, a no-kill animal shelter saving the lives of homeless dogs and cats.

The funds will be used to used to rehabilitate sick and injured animals and then find them loving homes through PAWS Chicago, the largest no-kill shelter in the Midwest.

Here’s How to Register:

Step 1: Please make a donation of at least $20.00 via my PAWS Chicago fundraising page. A donation of $26.20 would be cool but not necessary! 🙂

Step2: Fill out the form below to complete your registration no later than March 10, 2015.

Step 3: Complete your 5K or 10K race by March 20th and email me proof of your results (Garmin pic would work). All finishers can receive a finisher’s medal. The top 3 finishers at each distance will receive a special medal.

Thank you so much for supporting PAWS Chicago and me. I really appreciate you!

Here is what the finisher’s medal looks like – because we can’t all make the Olympics but we can all be champions for pets!
