JESSIE RAISED $4,190 FROM HER HALF MARATHON
Thank you so much to all who sponsored her
When Jessie met the cat we had rescued from a life of extreme hardship, she and Archie fell in love. To read about Archie’s rescue, recovery and happy ending, please click here.
As a tribute to her beautiful feline companion, Jessie competed in the Half Marathon in Rotorua. She confesses that she was “no runner” at the time, so this arduous 21km undertaking was an act of sacrifice, love and big-heartedness.
Thank you for your support of Jessie, for promoting her passionate goal on your websites, Facebook and other social media pages - and for forwarding the links to your friends, families and work colleagues. We know animal-lovers came forward to make all the hard work worthwhile for this young woman who remembered her beloved Archie with each step of her gruelling training sessions.
We are very proud of Jessie for throwing herself into an action that was so unnatural to her basic nature. We greatly appreciate your support of her, and the animals we were able to rescue, through your sponsorship.
Jessie completed the challenge in 2 hours and 47 minutes. With burning feet and an aching body, thoughts of Archie spurred her on when she thought she had no energy left. Huge congratulations Jessie! You have done us, Archie and yourself proud...
Jessie's fundraiser enabled three of the animals under our umbrella to have surgery. Thank you so much for making this possible and being for being part of Jessie's vision!
