Run (the NYC Half Marathon 2017) For Those Who Can't

Paul Kuznetz was my husband and best friend.  He was disabled in a car accident while stopped at a stoplight hit by a truck driver on his cell.  Since then, Paul had had numerous surgeries and procedures all with no success.  He stayed in the best of spirits even in the constant pain he was always in.  He had such a love of music.  He played and taught drums/drumming passionately like everything he did in his short life.  Mostly he loved our dogs.  They were his life.  Here is an article written about him after his unexpected death by sudden cardiac death (here).  It gives you an idea of the type of real man he was.  He funded and set up a musical charity event for spinal research a month prior to his death.  He always gave to animal charities like ASPCA. 

With no further adieu, I will be running for Paul and our now deceased doggies as well as my new rescued old pup and other animals in need. 

On March 19, 2017, I will be participating in the 2017 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon as a member of Team ASPCA! 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 is very important to me and I appreciate your help as we fight to give abused and homeless animals a second chance at life. Please support me by making a donation and help me make a positive impact in the lives of animals! 

Thank you and so does Paul and the pups from above!

Please PM or email me (Barbara) with your saying and mailing address so I can send you a custom bracelet as a thank you.  This would be perfect for Valentine's day for a significant other, a child or parent, a friend, for a memory of a lost one or maybe just a band you love.  See the picture on this page for examples!

About the ASPCA: Fighting for animals is a 24/7 job, but your commitment makes it possible for our life-saving programs to create happy endings for those innocent lives touched by cruelty.
