Mya will be running the NYC Marathon in November and run with Team Animal League.
She is running to raise $200,000 for the dogs and cats of the North Shore Animal League America.
They are the largest “no-kill” rescue and adoption organization.
There should be more shelters like that.
Mya is excited to complete the 26.2 mile run, saying:
"The Animal League's mission, saving the lives of precious animals, is one that touches my heart. I am excited to join Team Animal League's runners, each of whom treasures the beautiful and innocent shelter animals… and is equally committed to helping save as many lives as possible."
Good luck in the race, gurl! Save those animals!
