Hi, everyone! I've recently signed up for my first ever marathon (eek!), and I've decided to dedicate the run to fundraising for Peaceful Prairie, a Colorado animal sanctuary that provides lifelong care to rescued farm animals, as well as participating in humane education outreach! You can read about them at their website here: http://www.peacefulprairie.org/about.html.

I've been vegan for five years and have never actively participated in an animal rights fundraiser, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to do so, as well as to force myself to cross the finish line! I'm hoping to raise a minimum of $1,000 for Peaceful Prairie, and if this goes well I plan to do something similar for each of my future races, choosing a different animal-related non-profit each time. My donation page is here: http://www.yourcause.com/jazzrgrl. If you can contribute, awesome! And if not, I would love some re-posts to other social networking sites!

I'm bumping this because my race is a little over two weeks away, and I'm still really far away from my (perhaps overly ambitious) fundraising goal! Also, full disclosure: my training was sidelined due to injury, so I switched over to the half marathon race. But I plan to run the hell out of it! For the animals!!
