Cat Rescue Tri-State Marathon

On Monday, June 18, I ran the FIFTH annual New York Cat Hospital Father's Day Marathon. And as sole participant, I've again declared myself the winner!

I ran to raise funds for THREE special RESCUE groups:  Frankie's Feline Fund ( http://www.frankiesfelinefund.org), Ready for Rescue ( https://www.readyforrescue.org), and Paws Crossed Animal Rescue ( https://pawscrossedny.org).

These dedicated animal advocates pull ELDERLY, ILL, OR OTHERWISE UNADOPTABLE CATS from the kill 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 special needs cats from an unnecessary end.

I dedicated this year's run to sweet, beautiful "Clementine" (pictured above), personally adopted from Paws Crossed.  Initially so shy, timid and withdrawn, she was returned to the shelter multiple times.  But with patience and abundant love, she's blossomed into a confident, affectionate sweetheart.  

Following previous "Midnight" and "Manhattan" marathons, this year was a TRI-STATE MARATHON. I started in Greenwich, CT, ran through Westchester and upper Manhattan, and across the GWB into Ft. Lee, NJ! Total distance was 30 miles.

Abandoned at area shelters simply for being old or ill, these special needs cats deserve a chance. Please help support the tireless, good-hearted work of Ready For Rescue, Frankie's Feline Fund, and Paws Crossed with a donation, and SHARE with others on social media!  THANK YOU.
