Family, friends, coworkers, and beyond:
This September I will be running the Grand to Grand Ultra, North America's only self- supported stage race. I will traverse 170 miles over 6 stages, carrying what I need to survive on my back. This race is considered one of the toughest in the world and I am taking on the challenge to raise funds for Best Friends Animal Society, a place I am lucky enough to work each day. They have helped me set an ambitious goal of raising $10,000 for the organization.
When you donate to my fundraiser, you'll be helping around 1,600 dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, horses, and other barnyard animals who on any given day reside at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Plus, you'll be helping to save the lives of homeless pets all across the country through lifesaving adoption and spay/neuter programs, no-kill initiatives, and more.
Check out https://g2gultra.com/ to learn more about the race. I have also started an Instagram account (@drcolleenruns) to document my training, my inspiration, and stories of my patients at Best Friends Animal Society.
