OURS IS THE FURRY! Well, furry everything. Fur on the floor. Fur on the bed. Fur in the car. Fur on our pant legs when we need to go out and look presentable. House Pawratheon is the furriest! Pippin, our feature pup on this medal is a dog that will melt your heart. He was born without front legs, but the kind folks at Lovey Loaves have helped him live an amazingly pupperific life! This month, we will support Lovey Loaves and all the rescues they make a difference for.
Join us for event 4 of 5 celebrating a doggie power play for charity...the Game of Bones! Each event in the series will benefit a different dog related cause- each medal will build to an amazing 5 part art piece.
We will have 5 events, one a month, and the medals fit together for one giant piece. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of January 2018 for dog rescues, will you join us? Let's show the world what GoT fans and dog lovers can do!

Run or walk a 5k, 10k or 1 Miler on your own time, on your own turf- it's a great way to get active this spring, but mainly - to help raise awareness and fundraise for pug rescue with Lovey Loaves Special Needs Dog Rescue & Sanctuary.
For participating, you will receive a 3" diecast, Game of Bones - House Pawratheon "Ours Is the Furry" medal with sublimated high color satin finish ribbon. Proceeds benefit Lovey Loaves Special Needs Rescue & Sanctuary.
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 11.01-12.01.2017 (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 December 1 at midnight and you can unofficially report your time in our Private Facebook Group so we can cheer you on!
This Game of Bones series will take place over 5 months- with a medal to be earned every month. Each medal fits together, and will make something amazing when it's all done at the end of December.
Your medal will be mailed to your door, automagically after 12.01, and your bib can be downloaded at the link in your confirmation email after you've signed up. You do not need to report your time to get your medal, we trust you!
We are partnering with Lovey Loaves Special Needs Rescue & Sanctuary because we were so touched by the work they do to ensure that a dog who might be considered "unadoptable" is given the time and resources he or she needs to find their perfect fur-ever family. They not only know how to work with these sweet babies, they know how to make them thrive.
If a dog is born without legs, or has no eyes to see, the founders Cheri and Ward Wells know exactly what they need to succeed and hopefully, get placed in the right home. We are so proud to support their mission with this virtual run.
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 11.1-12.1, and you will be mailed an awesome House of Bones Sigil (medal) for House Pawratheon, a 3" double sided, Game of Bones medal supporting Lovey Loaves Special Needs Rescue & Sanctuary.. This is the fourth of five events in the series, but this Pippin medal is great on its own.
REPORTING YOUR MILEAGE:
Our goal is to help you have fun while helping special dogs 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 group 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 group. 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!
GETTING YOUR MEDAL:
You will need to do do your mileage some time before end of day on 12.1, when the race concludes. We will be shipping out medals after the race concludes on 12.1. You do not need to report your miles, your medal will be mailed out automatically.
The medals will automatically be shipped to you after 12.1 when the race concludes. Once medals are at our door, they will be shipped to yours- no need to report your miles (but feel free to brag on social!).
Virtual Charity Runs was founded by two dog loving rescue parents who saw the need for constant fundraising to keep small but impactful rescues afloat. With high medical costs for abused and special needs dogs, many organizations functions hand to mouth. What started as a "silly little pug run" turned into monthly events, and the medals kept getting better.
Since that first run, over $64,000 has been donated to dog rescues and other great causes- including the Northern Illinois Pug Rescue, Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue, French Bulldog Rescue Network- and now LoveyLoaves! Find out more at VirtualCharityRuns.com
You can still get your House Bark, House Tailgaryen and/or House Puggister medal (in limited quantities) to benefit their respective charities. When you check out, you will be given the option to add this as an add-on.
House Bark medals benefit Lovey Loaves Special Needs Dog Rescue. House Tailgaryen Medals benefit Saving Sunny Inc. House Puggister benefits the Northern Illinois Pug Rescue & PugHearts Houston.
