The Story

Help me combine my love of running with my love of animals by making a donation to Heartland Farm Sanctuary! (Might I suggest $26.20 -- a dollar per mile of the marathon :) ) 

Heartland, located in Verona, is the only dedicated farm animal sanctuary in Wisconsin. It's a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide care for farm animals in need, nurture people through the human-animal bond, and foster respect and kindness toward animals and each other. I've volunteered for Heartland over the past few years cleaning and winterizing the barn, building fences and chicken runs, sponsoring goats, selling coffee, and more. It's a great organization, and I hope you'll consider supporting it with a donation!

I added a few photos of Heartland's animals and a couple work days at the barn. 26 more days until I run 26.2 miles in Antarctica!

Only seven weeks until the Antarctica Marathon! I'm just over halfway done with my training and just under halfway to my fundraising goal for Heartland Farm Sanctuary. Please consider donating or sharing this link with your animal-loving friends :) Thanks!
