When I made the ultimate decision to jump in feet first when founding Audrey’s Rescue Angels in the summer of 2013, one goal I was committed to was having our supporters be involved in the fundraising as much as possible. As someone who gives A LOT to charities, I get constant requests for money. While I know all too well how IMPORTANT monetary gifts are, I also believe that it’s important to help make our supporters feel like they are apart of the Audrey’s Rescue Angels’ family. We try to do this by hosting events where people can both donate AND have fun while feeling like they are part of the process.
So, without further ado, I am beyond ecstatic to announce that our little organization is taking a BIG step and will be hosting our first annual 5K run/1M walk on Sunday, May 8th to help raise money for Audrey’s and our general fund.
While each year we receive more and more support, Audrey’s Rescue Angels is still run and operated by a VERY small team. Planning and executing a 5K race is slightly daunting, but I know that this event will be a complete blast and will once again allow our supporters to come out, join together, have some fun with their pups, and make a HUGE difference in the lives of animals.
Now onto the details! As I mentioned, the run will take place on Sunday, May 8th along the Chestnut Hill Reservation. Registration will begin at 8am, and the run will begin approximately at 9am. We are working on confirming some very exciting details and sponsors, but our Eventbrite page is now live and you can register (please note you must register to participate). Please help us make our inaugural year a huge success and sign up today to join us. There will be vendors, refreshments, giveaways, and plenty of fun to go around for the whole family.
Over the next two months, you will hear a lot about our Run Fur Fun but as always, if you have any questions, or are interested in sponsoring the run, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
Thank you from the very bottom of my heart for your support, and I look forward to lacing up and making a difference in the lives of animals with YOU on the 8th. Come earn your wings with us and become an angel to an animal in need!
Brittany and the Audrey’s Family
