I’m asking all pets (and their lovable hoomans both big and small) to join me and help make sick kids smile!

You can choose your challenge from easy to hard (my hooman says I’m doing the easy one) or you can choose your own challenge. No matter which challenge you choose, I’m asking all pets to join me, have some fun and raise money for our pawsome kids and their families.

It’s easy and free to sign up, even my hooman can do it! – Sign up, choose your challenge and then ask the hoomans you love to sponsor you.
