HIKE for a good cause!!

September 20, 2008 the team and I will will be 'hiking' to support Tales of the Tundra Siberian Husky Rescue Inc. (http://www.siberescue.com/).

Of course, we won't be doing it in person in Pennsylvania, as fun as that would be, instead we have signed up to be 'remote hikers'. And of course, we won't be hiking, we will be running - cause that is what we do - but we are looking to raise pledges for our run that day that will be donated to Tales of the Tundra.

Tales of the Tundra is one of many wonderful Siberian Husky rescue groups that we strive to support in ways we can. Taken from their website -

"Tails of the Tundra Siberian Husky Rescue is a nonprofit (501c3) volunteer organization, formed to help Siberian Huskies and Siberian Husky Mixes that have been abused, neglected, abandoned, or surrendered by their owners. Our goals are to place these dogs in loving homes and to educate people about the characteristics of this wonderful, yet often misunderstood, breed. To accomplish these goals and our overall mission, our network of volunteers throughout PA, NY, NJ, MD, DE, and WV are involved in raising funds, transporting and fostering dogs, developing and maintaining our web site, and representing the group at events."

Folks can either register to hike themselves (in person or as a remote hiker) at http://www.siberescue.com/Common/TailsTrails2008/hikeregonlineform.html - or you can pledge towards the NorthWapiti Team's run for the Hike at

This is a great group and a great cause - we'd appreciate your support!
