Postby haileysmom » August 3rd, 2008, 4:11 pm

Wow..it's been a crazy crazy time in my life....I know that I shared Gage's story here somewhere but decided to start a new post....

For those who don't know Gage's story please visit http://www.justiceforgage.com

I might be a little off my rocker but have decided to put together a "VIRGINIA WALK FOR GAGE".....

I'd like to schedule it mid to late september...Cooler temps!!! :) Happier pups!!!

Progress so far:

1) I have a DJ available.......

2) Very good chance that I can get Channel 12 out to the event (I have a reporter friend that works there and I have ran this idea past her and she is a big pitbull lover herself and liked the idea of them being able to show the good side of the pitbulls)..Channel 12 ran all the Michael Vick stories and recently I contacted my friend there and they ran a short story on the tragic death of "SEVEN"...One of Vick's former pitbulls who was being fostered by ALL OR NOTHING PITBULL RESCUE...

I am going to start approaching local businesses, pet stores to see about getting some sponsors lined up...

I will be checking with the park that I am hoping to hold this event at...They have a lake, trails and also covered picnic areas which is a major plus JUST in case the weather decides not to cooperate...Event will be held RAIN OR SHINE!!!!

I would like to ask if there are any Virginia friends (rescues, individuals, companies) that are interested to helping me get this off the ground...An opportunity to help us continue our mission of Spreading Awareness of Animal Cruelty and sending the message through our Events and Videos that PITBULLS CAN GET TOGETHER & HAVE A GREAT TIME...

I will gladly share my contact # if you would like to help....

Below are several links. To view prior Walk for Gage videos please click the link below each description...There is also the Television Interview with Gages family concerning Gage's Death...A must to watch!!! Last Link...

Please take a moment and reflect on the thought that this can happen to any of you and our mission in this life is to protect others from this happening again.... We will be their voice and will not sit back quietly and let heartless people rip our hearts out and murder our pets....

Also this will show the world that we can get our dogs together and have a great time. Let's show the world it's not the dog.

"Ban the Deed not the Breed!

Thank you for all you support cause without you we could not do this.....

Thank you...Sherry

I was thinking that could help out, but that's a bit south for me...as I'm near Baltimore. :(

I do know a very nice flyball team in Richmond that might be able to do a demo, if you're looking for that sort of stuff.

Do you think they would donate their time??? If so they would be added to the flyers that I will be having printed up as them being one of the sponsors of the event....GREAT ADVERTISEMENT FOR THEM AS WELL AS DONATING THEIR TIME FOR SUCH A GREAT CAUSE....
