For the Love of Animals! Erika's First Half-Marathon...

Hello Friends and Family! On November 4-5, 2017, I will be participating in the 2017 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend as a member of Team ASPCA, a national fundraising and endurance training program. I am excited to be participating as a member of Team ASPCA and honored to be raising the awareness and the much needed funding to support the ASPCA's programs. Your donation will help the ASPCA provide life-saving programs and services to millions of animals nationwide. The ASPCA's work is very important to me, as it is for all animal allies, and I appreciate your help as we fight to give abused and homeless animals a second chance at life! I will provide updates here about my training as I stumble... er... I mean kick butt... in my effort to prepare for my FIRST EVER HALF MARATHON (gulp)! If nothing else, they should be entertaining. ;) Also, to add a little incentive (I know there are a lot of fundraisers out there in social media land), anyone who donates $25 or more will be entered into a raffle. Prizes will include petwear and pet toys made by local crafters, specifics TBA. Additionally, anyone who donates any amount, and emails a jpg of their pet to me at erikagreenberg 11 (at) g mail dot com, will have their pet's picture featured on this page, and their pets name will be listed as a "sponsor". :) Please support me by making a donation and help me make a positive impact in the lives of animals! I must meet my goal of $1075.00 by October 15, 2017! Thank you for your support! love,Erika P.S. This message is approved by my cats, Aragorn and Bagheera (pictured above doing what they do best), which is really saying something since they generally don't approve anything that doesn't actively involve tuna.  ************************** 6/7/17 Training is slow-going, but luckily I'm just in preliminary training right now, so it's sort of "extra". The Jeff Galloway Disney Wine & Dine 2017 Half Marathon Training Program that I will be following officially starts July 4! So in essence, I'm training to start training. After the winter I've had, believe me, I need it!  In other news, Lollypups Designer Petwear has donated a gorgeous doggie sweater and people scarf for me to raffle off! Anyone who donates $50 or more via this page will be eligible to win this set, photos of which I've added to the photo collage above:

This "Pepper" style doggie vest from Lollypups Designer Petwear is a hand-crocheted, bi-color stripe of 100% alpaca. It has a ribbed turtleneck collar with a crocheted half-ball button closure at the neck for easy wearability. Ribbed turtleneck can be rolled down as pictured. Stylish floral brooch is removeable.

But wait! There's more!

Match your pet with this adorable and luxurious alpaca scarf for women. The matching scarf to the "Pepper" sweater is 39" long and 5" in width. It's hand crocheted in Black /white 100% Alpaca. When the scarf is crossed over and buttoned, the white ball motif meets the others forming a floral cluster, and giving the scarf a pop of color.

There will be other raffles too for those who donate $25 - $50, and for those who donate $100 or more. Details to come!
