Running to Protect our Furry Friends! ASPCA NYC Marathon Fundraiser

I am so excited to announce that on November 5, 2017, I will be running in the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon as a member of Team ASPCA! I am beyond pumped to be participating as a member of Team ASPCA and so incredibly honored to be raising the awareness and the much needed funding to support the ASPCA's programs. As I have been growing into the transition of adulthood and taking on more responsiblities the past few years, I have grown to realize that one of my responsibilities is to have a voice, to use that voice actively, and to give back to this world that has and continues to provide a beautiful, blossoming place that we get to call home.  I have always been passionate about the animals we share this earth with, and how our planet is equally a home for them as it is a home for us.  However, there are others who don't see our relationship to our furry friends as being equal our mutually beneficial, and therefore take advantage, mistreat, abuse, and kill these gentle, helpless creatures we are supposed to live in tandem with. I decided to become a vegetarian about 2 years ago to help with the issue of animal farming, greenhouse gases, and the treatment and preservation of all animals, but felt myself having a strong desire to do more for the animals who we actively share our homes with.  These animals save our lives as much, if not more, than we save theirs, and they deserve better from all of us.  That is why I have decided to train and run the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon for Team ASPCA.  I want to be a voice for the voiceless, and an advocate for hope and change for our loving friends who need help. To run, I am raising $3,500 directly for ASPCA. 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. I would be FOREVER grateful for your support by making a donation, small or large, to help me make a positive impact in the lives of our furry friends! Thank you! Christy Soeder (:
