Help me get back in shape for my birthday AND help HSPPR!
Cheyenne and Tara are our doggie son and daughter, adopted from HSPPR. They are waiting at the bridge.
Dear friends, family, and friends of friends!
For my birthday, I am doing a virtual fundraiser to benefit our awesome local humane society!
The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR) is a local non-profit that is a 4-star (highest rating) on Charity Navigator. They're not part of a national system and they rely on donations to continue their awesome work that includes helping people in need with low cost MOBILE clinics and emergency services, trap/neuter/release of feral cat populations, lost/found services, and working with other rescues/shelters in the area to try to get EVERY adoptable animal a home. Erin and I have volunteered with them since 1994. Lately, we do events like this one!
For every $20 donated, I will commit to logging 10,000 steps. (I'm supposed to be doing 10,000 steps/day anyway, 'cause it's healthy.) I'm kinda terrified by this, because some days I walk 2,500 steps. Most days, I walk 5,000 steps. Yesterday, I walked 14,000+ steps at the Wild Animal Sanctuary and was pretty darn tired! I am out of shape!
NOTE: My page goal is $200, because I've raised that in the past for birthday fundraisers on Facebook. That's 10 days of good healthy walking!
NOTE: I did consider that if I suddenly became the top leader (currently $5635) that I just signed up for 10,000 steps/day for the next year (or doing over 10,000 steps/day ... did you catch how I worded that up there?)
