You all rock my world. Seriously, I couldn’t be more grateful for the hundreds of runners who have contributed their time, energy, and money to our latest two Virtual Charity Runs: Virtual Pug Run and Gratitude in Bloom Run.
The final totals are in for these two successful runs and they are as follows:
Gratitude in Bloom Run
Benefiting the California Rainbow Girls Foundation, a wonderful organization that provides young girls the opportunity to learn leadership skills, learn the values of community service and provide many with college scholarships, our Gratitude in Bloom Run raised $2278.48. Aaron and I also donated $222 of our own money to Straight From The Heart Resource Center, a resource center in San Marcos, California that provides support of all kinds to foster families.
Total raised = $2500.48
Virtual Pug Run
Supporting the Northern Illinois Pug Rescue, a non-profit exists to assist the community in placing any needy Pug dog in a permanent, loving home, our Virtual Pug Run raised a whopping $8100.71.
Total Raised = $8100.71
Again, because of the generosity of all of you amazing runners/walkers/bikers/wheelchairers/etc., we have raised over $44,000 for deserving non-profits. This literally translates to many lives enriched and even saved. That’s. Freakin’. Awesome.
