Emily's NYC Marathon Goal

Hey Paw-ty People!

Sophia and I are raising money for animals in need. But in typical Soph fashion, I'm doing all the legwork. Literally.

On 11/1/15, I'll be huffing and puffing through the streets of the Big Apple, as part of the NYC Marathon. Even though this type of endurance does not come easily for me (I mean, seriously, Netflix, anyone?), I'm still excited because I'm running as a member of Team ASPCA.

This means all my efforts, and early mornings, and dizzying long-runs are for a cause. And so is your support. Your donation will help the ASPCA provide life-saving programs and services to millions of animals nationwide. You're not just giving money, you're giving abused and homeless animals a second chance at life. 

Thanks for your well-wishes and encouragment to carbo-load!

Em & Soph

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. Every single day of the year, we are rescuing animals from neglect and suffering. With your support, we are able to rescue animals from dog fighting, cockfighting, and puppy mills, work to end animal homelessness and farm animal cruelty, and provide medical care for countless pets in need. Please help us save even more animals and donate to this Team ASPCA campaign today.

    I am so very proud of you and every step you've taken (both literally and figuratively) to accomplish this superwoman feat. I am always amazed by your sheer grit and even-if-it-kills-me determination, but I'm never surprised. You are your grandmother's girl. And I'm so lucky to call you my friend. 26.2 ain't got nothin' on you, babe.

    I'll donate $20 now and $20 when the job is done. It's the same remuneration structure as an assassination. So you better kill this race. Also, can't wait for my Facebook shoutout. Three smiley emojis with halos above their heads.

    If this is anything like the zombie run, you've got this on lock-down! Oh - and remember not to say any embarrassing things while other people's GoPros are filming ... or not filming.
