Race for PAWS 5K/10K Update!
Yesterday was the last day to sign up for the Team Paws virtual 5K/10K!
It was also the day the Chicago Marathon lottery opened! Good luck to everyone who has entered the lottery. I hope that your name gets picked and we can hang out in Chicago!
Today I want to give everyone who donated an update on the race, but before I do that I just have to say how grateful I am to every single person who donated to PAWS.
I know that you can (and do) run the 5K and 10K distance in training all the time. You didn’t have to pay $20+ to join in my virtual race, but I am really appreciative that you did.
Along with Waggle’s $250 donation, together we have raised over $850 in just about one month. That’s incredible!
The $867 that we’ve raised so far could pay for:
- 13 x-rays for injured dogs and cats …or
- 11 IVs for sick dogs and cats …or
- 10 spay/neuter procedures …or
- 4 rounds of medication for dogs and cats with upper respiratory infections or
- 27 days worth of litter for all the cats at the PAWS shelter or…
Heartworm treatment for a sick dog or cat, medication for the entire shelter for a day or any combination of these things.
That $800 can go a long way at a shelter, and I hope you feel really good about your contribution!
So, now the part you’ve been waiting for, a breakdown of the race!

I’ll be updating the race page, removing the signup form and adding results over the next couple of days.
You have until March 20th to submit your race time! 🙂
I will be placing the order for race medals this week and will be shipping them out to everyone who requested one on March 21st!
THANK YOU again to everyone that is participating!

PS: If you are a doggie parent, please take a minute to check out Waggle’s blog. Waggle is the official sponsor of the Race for PAWS 5K/10K and made a $250 donation to PAWS on my behalf! They post really useful tips for dog parents on their blog that I think you’ll really like!
