Wallace the Pit Bull's WOD (Workout Of the Day) for Dogs is a human (sans dog) workout fundraiser to benefit the Playing for Life program. Playing for Life travels the country teaching shelter staff how to conduct dog playgroups at their facility. Dog playgroups have been shown to be one of the best forms of kennel enrichment. They relieve stress, provide exercise and socialization, and ultimately help get the dogs adopted. Sept 7th, 2013, gyms across the country will be invited to participate in the WOD for Dogs workout, and donations will be collected online. Part of the proceeds will be used to set up the Wallace the Pit Bull Foundation 501c3, so future events will be tax deductible for the donors. The rest of the profits will go toward Playing for Life, and ensuring programs like it can continue.
First ever WOD for Dogs event is in the books! $655 dollars raised, pushing us over the $10,000 mark! Thanks for your support CFTC, and for kicking things off with such an awesome turnout! Next week, we'll find out if any gyms can beat them and raise even more! - See more at: http://www.youcaring.com/other/wod-for-dogs/75100#sthash.Ru6NnGgb.dpuf
Thanks to the generosity of Wallace's fans, we have surpassed $9,000 already! Hopefully we can reach the $10,000 mark before the event on the 7th even comes! 20 gyms from across the country have said they will be participating. I've challenged them to match the contributions of Wallace's fans, and increased the goal of this fundraiser to $20,000 as a result. Just like Wallace rose up to each challenge he was faced with, we can do the same to help other dogs like him across the country. Huge thank you to all those that have already donated! Feel free to share this page - www.youcaring.com/wodfordogs - for others to do the same! This one's for you Wallace!
Closing in on the $2,000 mark! Let's see if we can blow the $10,000 goal out of the water! The more money we raise, the more shelter dogs will benefit. We have 10 gyms committed, and a few more in the wings. Thank you for all the support!
