On May 20th I will be running in a 24 hour race at the Sussex County Fairgrounds. The objective of this race is to complete the most one mile laps in 24 hours. I have decided to use this opportunity to raise awareness and money for very worthwhile organization.
I will be running for One Step Closer Animal Rescue (O.S.C.A.R.), a no kill animal shelter located in Sussex County. Instead of just running around in one mile circles for 24 hours, I'd like to make those laps really count in a meaningful way.
I also believe that running for a cause will help me through the long hours of this race. I'm planning (if allowed by the race organizers) to run a few of the laps with some of the rescue dogs, in hopes that perhaps a spectator may decide to give one of them a forever home. Please let me know if you are interested in this story.
