Lucky Cat Virtual Run
Hi friends! I am thrilled to tell you about our latest race here at Virtual Charity Runs! The Lucky Cat Virtual Run, which will run through May 14, will benefit our first cat rescue: Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue!
Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue mission is to “use specialized knowledge of cat breeds to provide an appropriate foster alternative for homeless purebred cats and kittens whose special requirements are difficult to meet in a shelter environment, in addition to helping as many special needs domestic cats as our resources allow.” This wonderful rescue has been helping cats of all ages and with various health and special needs for a whopping 18 years.
If you are unfamiliar with our races, when you sign up, you will have a choice of a 1 miler, 5k, or 10k. Regardless of the distance you choose, the entrance fee is $28 per person. What’s especially cool is we will send you a double-sided medal, featuring this adorable maneki-neko, or lucky cat, which is a common Japanese figurine that is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. If you’ve ever brought a rescue cat in your life, you probably already feel pretty lucky – but if you join us this month to run/walk for Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue, you’ll be bringing the good fortune to other homes and other cats that are waiting to be united through rescue.
Please know that you can run/walk/wheel/row/bike as little as one mile and you can do those things anywhere. We have no rules about where, when, or even how you get your mileage in. We are just psyched that you are supporting homeless cats while making healthy choices.
