My name is Cathy Cowan Becker, and I live in Columbus, Ohio. This is the blog for my swim marathon fundraiser to be conducted in June 2013.
I will be swimming a marathon (26.2 miles) through the month to raise money for two organizations – Cat Welfare Association, a no kill cat shelter in Columbus, Ohio, and Lions, Tigers & Bears, a big cat and exotic animal sanctuary in Alpine, Calif.
The goal is to raise $2600 – $100 for each mile – with half going to each group. On this blog I will keep track of the miles I swim, talk about issues facing big and small cats, and feature adoptable cats from Cat Welfare and the big cat residents of Lions, Tigers and Bears.
I hope you will consider donating to both!
