Why am I walking a 5km Walk on May 4th, and would like your support?

Anyone of you who knows me knows I am not the most fit person on the planet. But, I have over the past year been hiking and moving with my dog Smidgin, more than ever before. So, my friend, Anita Dinan RAN her first 5km marathon last year, and was inspiring to watch. So this year, she suggested a 5km walk. I agreed, cautiously.

The walk is in May as part of the GoodLife Marathon, and I will be walking with Anita in the Weight Watchers 5km Walk portion of the event. 

We can support any charity we chose in this walk. 

I am choosing to raise money for two small Ontario Dog rescue organizations, because small organizations are so overlooked and need the funds desperately to help the dogs they lovingly rescue and find forever homes for.

Funds raised will be divided between the Pugalug Pug Rescue, run by Blanche Axton and the Border Collie Rescue of Ontario, run by Cindy Boht.

Both these women do amazing work and have saved many dogs from death, and have found forever homes for so many dogs. It is a labour of love for them, but it takes so much money to save all these dogs and find forever homes for them. 

So, I need your support to help raise $2000 to share between the two groups, and more importantly, you'll be supporting me walking 5km for the FIRST time. It's a win-win, really!
