The Fun Run spirit is alive and well all the way out in Connecticut!

Bobbie Wynne and her pup, Leo, completed the virtual Annual Fun Run for Charities for a second consecutive year. They went above and beyond clocking 3.58 miles, summiting Mohawk Mountain and celebrated with a refreshing dip!

Leo is a former Beartooth Humane Alliance adoption to Bobbie, and she said, "I am so blessed to still have him by my side. We walked the forest trails on the cool mornings and tracked our distance each day. Here are our Celebration pics. Hope you and your friends and pups enjoy this Fun Run too!!!

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM PARENTS 👂👩‍👧👨‍👦‍👦 COVID-19 Family Impact Survey.... We are all facing uncertain and challenging times, which is why we are committed to ensuring families across Montana have access to vital information about available resources. To help coordinate local and state resources, we are asking parents with children under the age of 18 in their household to complete this anonymous survey. The more we know, the more we can communicate to local, state, and national policymakers about the needs and resources required to support families. The survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete (even on your mobile device!), and we’re hoping you can respond by April 10th. Here is the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/COVID19MT. Thank you for your time, we are all in this together.

An important Fun Run announcement from Beartooth Humane Alliance! (an excerpt from our newsletter) Last year we celebrated our 10-year anniversary, and it gave all of us at BHA a chance for reflection. The one undeniable thread running through our history has been the ongoing, unwavering support we have received from our community and beyond. Year after year, generous donations of all sizes have sustained our work. This year, thanks a single sizeable donation, our budget for general operating expenses has already been met. It’s amazing, and enviable for a non-profit to be so financially secure. After some discussion this spring, BHA board members decided to extend the generosity we’ve received to our community. To do that, BHA will not be participating in the Red Lodge Area Community Foundation’s annual Fun Run For Charities this year. As you might remember, BHA has been among the top three recipients for donations for several years. This year, we want our generous donors to consider giving the money they had set aside for us to other local charities. Our needs are met, while other organizations are in need, so it just didn’t seem right to us to continue to ask for donations for our general operations. In the coming year, we may call on our donors to help us meet a specific, unforeseen need, but for now, please continue in your generosity by supporting the great work other non-profits are doing in our community. BHA will continue to be a visible part of the Fun Run because it’s so, well, FUN! We won’t be seeking donations, but we hope you’ll still come by our booth and say hello. See you after the race!
