UPDATE: A private citizen will match any funds we raise up to $15,000! So if we raise $15,000, we will have $30,000 to go toward vet bills. This is amazing news! Please help if you can. Today we are at $12,756 or at 85% of our goal!
Last year was our first participating in the Charity Challenge. We were bowled over by the enthusiastic response from our supporters and team members! In addition to the money raised, for which we (and ACR kitties) were very grateful, we genuinely had a great time doing the race and invite you to join our team for 2016! There is room for both casual walkers and dedicated runners. Children accompanied by adults are welcome! Not only will it be fun and for a great cause, but you’ll get a one-of-a-kind ACR team t-shirt and meet some nice people. There will even be prizes. Any team member who raises at least $150 for ACR will be eligible to have their race registration fee reimbursed after the race.
Most of us are doing the 5k walk but you can run the 5k, Half-Marathon (21.1k) or Marathon (42.2k). It’s up to you!
Every Team ACR member will receive a special ACR T-shirt and there will be prizes in several categories (e.g., top fundraisers, best costume, etc.).
To join our team, please email Joanna at email@example.com so she can get you placed on our team. ***Note: you MUST register for the race using Annex Cat Rescue’s charity discount code in order for us to reimburse the fee.
Don’t delay — join today and help us help homeless cats!
And if you aren’t able to participate this year, you can still support Annex Cat Rescue by making a team donation.
