"Every day, perfectly good horses are shipped to the slaughterhouse simply because they aren’t wanted by their owners anymore. Last summer, I was fortunate enough to save one of these horses through JM Acres Rescue Ranch in Maple Ridge, BC... Rio has become a great friend and will live a good life here in Kootenay Country."
This May, I will be participating in the annual Bloomsday Run in Spokane, Washington. It’s a 12.4 km event, and with an average of over 50,000 runners and walkers, it is one of the biggest in North America. This is only my third year and at my age (I’m 62!) it is definitely a challenge.
My goal this year is to take another 5 minutes off my time, and in the process raise funds for JM Acres while I do it."
Thanks and Happy Trails!
