You don't have to be a 501c3, Lisa. Ryley's Run is a 501c3 now. You can do it through Ryley's Run like Dirk's did.

Think about Brooksvale Park in Hamden. I believe they allowed an event which benifited Autism to take place on the location and almost 2000 people showed up. Plus, I think they had a hot air balloon tethered, too!

I can certainly help and get some info if you'd like. It's a lot of work and Donna has done pretty much all of the work. I'd certainly need lots of help.

Lisa, you have Kim in such a tizzy when she saw that, she is having a hard time typing because she is so excited.
Incidentally now that Ryleys Run is a 501c3 you can do the run through Ryleys Run to benefit Sunshine Golden Retriever Rescue. That is how we did it with Dirks and ECGRR and HBGRR

LOL! Well Kim don't hurt yourself!!! This is great news!!! I don't handle our fundraising stuff (thank goodness ) but I know Ruthie would love to attend a Ryley's Run! She can't travel too far by car so CT is PERFECT!!! She will be there with tiara on dragging her #1 schlepper behind her!!!!!

Well I am sure we can rustle up a few helpers!!! We have some really fun people who would probably LOVE to help!! I will put a bug in Suzanne's ear and get back to you! Oh this is great!!!!!!!!!!!

Lisa,

I don't need helpers, I need someone to be in charge. I'm not a leader, I'm a great helper. I'd love to do it though. Let me think this through...

Lisa, Kim is a veteran now. She has two years experience. She is a pro at this. She should be able to help you immensely in doing this. Anything I can do, let me know. I have the golf tournament to get going next week but if you seriously do one let me know. I will be glad to help out but not run it.

Can't quite express how impressed I was with how a group of people could come together like that and all pull in the same direction with AWESOME results....I had such a great time meeting the furkids and their parents, the U of Albany campus was gorgeous-as was the weather, the Best Western was gracious even when covered in golden fur....
Donna is a wonderful hostess....and organizer.....unbelievable how many bases she had to cover. But she took time to make sure we all were OK over the whole W/E. Thanks, Donna!
The Ryley's and Valentino's of the world couldn't have a better champion than you!!!


The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.

Awwww, thanks so much MB. I posted an SOS thread looking for you. I got concerned. LOL!!!!! It was great meeting you and your fur babies and Sharon. It was so short a visit. I hated saying goodbye to everyone. Seemed like we just said hello. You guys were great and thanks so much for coming and helping out.
