Cat Rescue Manhattan Marathon

$17,505 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 201 people in 9 months
On Sunday, June 18, I will be running the fourth annual New York Cat Hospital Father's Day Marathon. And as sole participant, there's a good chance I'll win...again!

I'm running to raise funds for two special CAT RESCUE groups:  Frankie's Feline Fund ( http://www.frankiesfelinefund.org/)
and Ready for Rescue ( http://www.readyforrescue.org/).

These dedicated feline advocates pull elderly, ill, or otherwise unadoptable cats from the euthanasia lists at area shelters, provide vital medical care, and place them in foster and forever homes. Between them they've saved literally hundreds of loving, wonderful cats from an unnecessary end.

We're dedicating this year's run to sweet, charming, toothless "Rizzo" (pictured above), one of the aforementioned rescues. So full of personality, Rizzo was a client and staff favorite, and lived happily here with us at New York Cat Hospital for two years before his recent  demise :(

Last year was a "midnight marathon:" I started at the stroke of midnight, and ran through the night on a dark,  isolated, semi-rural trail.  Not doing that again...

This year will instead be a MANHATTAN MARATHON. I'll start at the cat hospital, and run a full loop around the island of Manhattan! I'm excited, as I've never done this before.  Depending on my exact course (TBD), I'll likely cover 29 or 30 miles.

Please help support the tireless, good-hearted work of Ready For Rescue and Frankie's Feline Fund with a donation, and share with others on social media!  Thank you.

A final big THANK YOU to you all. The campaign will close in a few days, at which time I'll issue checks to Frankie's Feline Fund and Ready for Rescue.

Know that your generous donations will quite literally save the lives of senior and special needs cats that would otherwise be put down.

FWIW, along my route I took photos of all TWENTY bridges that connect to Manhattan. Who knew there were so many!?! I found that quite interesting.

If you'd like to see, they're up on Twitter (@peter_soboroff)

Thanks again.

Hot, humid, and MUCH longer than expected. 36.33 miles in all. But all for a good cause. I'm exhausted...going home for some sushi (the "ibuprofen roll").

BIG THANKS to all who donated. And for those who haven't yet, please consider

The campaign will remain open a few more weeks.
Don't forget to spread the word!

For anyone interested, I've attached a pic of the route.
