We’ve Chosen Our Race Charity

November 11th is International Run Day. It’s a great way to get people out running just for the sake of running, but there’s also an organized website that allows you to stage your own satellite event, with t-shirts and bibs, or not –  everything is optional! You can organize your own race, set your course and schedule as you wish. Options abound.

One thing that they would like to insist on is that races raise money for local charities. We’ve chosen the charity for our race – the Casino Catnippers!

They’re new-ish, very small, and the website doesn’t have much detail yet, but one of our co-workers is heavily involved in it. They rescue cats that have been dumped in casino parking garages. They’re also about to lose their funding.

So here’s for the kitties!
