Run, Bobbie, Run! Raise Money for Black and Orange Cat Foundation!

Black and Orange Cat Foundation’s board member, co-founder, volunteer, and foster, Bobbie Timmons, will be running the Columbus Marathon on Sunday, October 21, 2012. Bobbie has run two half marathons of 13.1 miles, but never the full 26.2 marathon. This will be her first endeavor at a full marathon and she has been practicing for months now to get ready. On Sunday, August 26, she ran the Emerald City Half Marathon in just about 2 hours and 45 minutes. That means, she will be running for around 5-6 hours for the full marathon! Impressive!

Bobbie decided to become a marathon runner to raise money for the kitties of Black and Orange. She will be running in a specially made B and O shirt and ball cap with the group’s logo embroidered on both. You can clearly see her coming in her black and orange outfit.

Bobbie is asking people to please donate either $0.50, $1, or $2 for every mile she is going to run ($13, $26, or $52 total). Her goal is to raise as much money as possible to help spay and neuter even more kitties in need. Black and Orange can spay a female cat for around $50 and neuter a male cat for $32. If you donate $0.50 or $1 per mile, the group will apply those amounts, $13 or $26, toward a cat neuter. If you donate $2 per mile ($52), Black and Orange will spay one female cat. Let’s see how many cats Black and Orange can spay and neuter using Bobbie’s very capable legs!

You can donate on Bobbie’s Cause Page HERE. You can also donate by clicking on the PayPal button on the B and O home page HERE.

Or if you would prefer, you can mail a donation to: Black and Orange Cat Foundation, P. O. Box 126, Plain City, Ohio 43064

Please send a note with your check or money order, stating that the donation is for Bobbie’s marathon campaign.
