Wait.. what!? Pugs? And running? And a sparkly new medal? Sign me up!
I was reading one of my frequently visited running blogs, Through Heather’s Looking Glass, when I saw her post about a virtual fun run her blog friend was hosting. The run is a 5k/10K/1 mile virtual race that can be run anywhere/anytime between now and October 12th. The race benefits the Northern Illinois Pug Rescue. All registered participants receive this gorgeous, hilarious, and adorable pug medal:
How awesome is that!?
In addition to the race for charity, the blogger’s fiance has agreed to wear this during his first marathon in Chicago, IF they can meet their goal of raising- $7,860- the equivalent of rescuing 26.2 pugs.
The couple needs over 375 participants to cover costs and to meet their fundraising goal. The entry fee for the virtual race is $27.. a sturdy yet do-able fee for a new piece of shiny bling and piece of mind that puggies in Northern Illinois might have a happy healthy future!
