The maneki-neko, or lucky cat, is a common Japanese figurine (lucky charm, talisman) which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. If you've ever brought a rescue cat in your life, you probably already feel pretty lucky- but if you join us this month to run/walk for Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue, you'll be bringing the good fortune to other homes and other cats that are waiting to be united through rescue.
Join us for a "Virtual" Run- you'll still do the running/walking, but you'll be able to help the rescue no matter where you live, no matter how busy you are! EVERYONE gets a real medal for participating, earning their miles and helping the rescue. Join us from 4.1-5.14 (race closes at midnight!), and run or walk on your own time or your own turf. Miles are on the honor system, just be sure to do your miles before 5.14 so your new lucky charm is earned with your hard work!
Proceeds benefit Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue (they're awesome!) At Virtual Charity Runs, we've donated over $52,000 to rescues and other great causes so far- so your registration will make an impact. Medals will begin shipping on 4.17!

To earn this amazing medal for an AMAZING cause, you can run or walk a mile, 5k or 10k (heck we will even take swimmers and cyclers!) anytime from 4.1-5.14, and you will be mailed an awesome good luck charm, a 3" double sided, maneki-neko, AKA, "lucky cat" to benefit the Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue.
REPORTING YOUR MILEAGE:
Our goal is to help you have fun while helping cats in need, do not stress about reporting your mileage. Reporting is NOT necessary, but you can share a sweaty selfie or Garmin screenshot on our Facebook page to unofficially report you mileage.
Your medal will be mailed out automatically, but we would love for you to unofficially report your time with a sweaty selfie, or a photo of your furry family member (rescue cat or otherwise) on our Facebook page! Not necessary, but totally fun!
It doesn't matter how fast or slow you go, if you love dogs and you want this medal that goes to support a good cause, come and run or walk with us!
These are medals you won't want to miss! If you joined us for the Lucky Dog Virtual Run, or even if you didn't, your life will be made luckier by helping rescued cats this month!
