Team Desmond Dekker

Among the many positive ways my wife has impacted my life, two are applicable here.  Prior to meeting my lovely wife Christy, nearly six years ago, I ran primarily in increments of one sad and lonely mile at a time.  Even worse…I did not know the joys of pet parenthood! 

Fast forward:

I am now an avid runner and believe it or not enjoy it immensely!  I have completed eight half marathons, countless 10Ks, and love challenging myself with new goals of mileage and pace.  I set and achieved my goal of 600 total miles in 2018 and have upped the ante in 2019 to 1,000+ total miles and a little 26.2 mile jaunt through the Big Apple.

Of even more interest, the animal lovers have welcomed me with warm embrace into their ranks!  Christy brought her rescue kitten, named…Kitten, into the relationship as well as her family rescue dog, Quincy.  We subsequently adopted a second kitten, named Mocha, and when Quincy passed away, filled our home with renewed joy from adopting our puppy, Desmond (he’s now three but as rambunctious as ever).

Although not as applicable here, I would be remiss not to mention we also have a beautiful two-year-old old human named Eleanor! 

On November 3, 2019, I will be participating in the 2019 TCS New York City 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! 

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 cruelty, work to end animal homelessness and provide medical care for countless pets in need. Please help us save even more animals and donate to this Team ASPCA campaign today. Interested in joining the team? Learn More »
