Raising money on behalf of my school
Cheyenne and Tara are our doggie son and daughter, adopted from HSPPR. They are waiting at the bridge.
Dear family, friends, students, friends of friends, 2nd generation students, and random strangers!
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, because it's healthy.) I'm kinda terrified by this, because some days I walk 2,000 steps. Most days, I walk 5,000 steps. On one day, I walked 15,000 steps! I'm doing a Conqueror Challenge of "Walking to Mordor" (Lord of the Rings reference) ... I just made it to Bree!
NOTE: My page goal is $500, because I've raised that in the past. That's 25 days of good healthy walking!
