Run in honor of Richie Brown and our fur family

Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page. I am going to be running the Dark Side Challenge in honor of my father, Richie Brown, who passed away 8 years ago. My dad was a lover of all animals.  Every time we turned around he was rescuing and bringing home a new pet. When he passed away, we asked that donations be made to the ASPCA in his name, in leiu of flowers. His love for animals has definitely transferred over to my sister and myself. All three of my cats are rescues and they are my absolute world. My mother and Richie Brown Landscaping just recently rescued a litter of kittens from the office yard.

Star Wars is the only film(s) my dad would go to the movie theater to see. Growing up, I never had much interest in the films, but I was so excited to have the chance to go to the movies with my dad. I do not remember much from those movies, besides sitting next to him and seeing how happy he was. Now working for Disney, Star Wars has become such a huge part of my job, and I always feel like I have a little piece of my dad with me.

I could not think of a better way to honor my father than to run to help raise proceeds for ASPCA. On April 14-17, 2016, I will be participating in the 2016 Star WarsTM Half Marathon – The Dark Side 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 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!

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.
