Welcome to Vic's Grand to Grand 2023 Fundraiser Page

This year I celebrate 13 years working for Best Friends Animal Society and decided to do something BIG for the animals. I planned to participate in the Grand to Grand Ultra aka “the hardest race in the world” on 24-30 September.

The G2G is a 6 stage 7 day race across some of the most remote and inhospitable parts of America. It starts at the spectacular North Rim of the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and ends at the Grand Staircase, one of the world's most iconic geological formations. The race covers 171 miles. Check out www.g2gultra.com for more details.

Alas, in early August while casually walking down a hill in flimsy sneakers I rolled my ankle on a rock and ended up in Urgent Care. Who knew you could fracture AND sprain your ankle? I had to put my training to one side and wore an orthotic boot for 6 weeks. My ankle is slowly mending... but not in time to make the start line : (

Nevertheless, I will carry your generosity over to 2024 and hope to be at the start line, strong, healthy and injury-free.

Love and pawprints,
