We need under 100 runners now to hit our crazy audacious goal of saving 26(.2) pugs… we just crossed the 200 runner mark with over $1200 in extra donations for the cause of supporting the Northern Illinois Pug Rescue!
I came back from vacation to find that we have crossed the 200 Virtual Pug Runner mark, which means we need under 100 runners to hit our fundraising goal! I’m placing the medal order THIS WEEK so please, if you wanted to run, please sign up. If you have signed up, can you share one last time so we can cross the goal?
We. Are. So. Close.
I may cap the registration at 275, which would put us a bit under our goal, even with the donations, but I’m nervous about placing a medal order of 300 if we only have a few days left to sell the spots…I keep wrestling with the idea- giving up on the goal prematurely, or, the possibility of having too many unsold medals and still not hitting our goal, wasting them.
Everyone has been so generous and we have Virtual Pug Runners from all over the world- including Canada, the U.K. (including Scotland), Australia and Ireland…thank you everyone!! It has been a crazy ride, it’s amazing to think we’re so close to this goal!
Our goal is to save 26(.2) pugs and put these rescued dogs into loving homes. Each runner gets a super fun PUG UNICORN glitter medal and every penny beyond cost goes to the rescue efforts (no profits or shady business, all goodness!). All around, this is a FUNdraiser…you get a medal, help some pugs, and Chris runs the Chicago Marathon in a ridiculous pug singlet. It’s a triple win!
Because, honestly, isn’t this face worth saving? Matilda is just one rescue pug who has benefited from this great organization and rescue efforts.
