Although Ironman is definitely its own reward, I wanted some extra good to come out of it. To that end, I am raising money for the local animal shelter, Tri-Lakes Humane Society.
They are a great group who work hard to take care of the unwanted and neglected animals in the area, but like many shelters are on a shoestring budget.
My goal is to raise $1406, or $10 per mile. Please donate at my Firstgiving page here.
After all, how can you NOT want to help these faces? (And yes, these are pictures of actual animals currently available for adoption in the shelter.)
Thanks in advance for your generosity. Let's make this happen!
