Chris Cav Rucking for Veterans

I am taking on two 26.2m ruck marches to honor veterans. Please help support NEADS and their world class service dogs. Specifically, I’d like to name a dog after a Veteran who loved animals. He would be thrilled that his legacy continues to help others.

Pennies for Puppies by Garry Lohman

This is my second time fundraising for NEADS. My first effort was when I was fundraising as a newly accepted client ( all clients are asked to raise $8,000 for NEADS). It was at that time that I received my first Service Dog, Montana. I can’t tell you enough about what a wonderful companion that she is to me.
