Furever Home Running is a small company specializing in virtual run events to help raise money for nonprofit animal rescue organizations while helping people increase their physical fitness and self-image. Dr. Scott Frasard, an avid runner and triathlete who happens to care about animal wellbeing, started Furever Home Running in 2017 to make a difference in animals’ and people’s lives.
Scott and his wife live and work near Austin, TX. Here, they began working with Starfish Cat and Kitten Rescue by fostering, transporting, and providing private funding for cats in need of adoption. Over time, this became a mission and passion.
Why we do virtual races:
In everything we do, we believe we are making a difference in the lives of pets and people. We believe every animal deserves a safe, loving home, is provided healthcare, and has adequate food.
We also believe every person can participate in running sports regardless of perceived ability. We believe everyone’s heath is vitally important and increasing physical fitness can be accomplished by increasing self-efficacy and access to running events.
How we support our causes:
The way we make a difference in animals’ and people’s lives is by making running events affordable and convenient while rewarding participants with amazing swag. Five dollars from each race registration goes to fund two nonprofit rescue organizations at a time to cover adoption, vet care costs, and food.
What do we do?
We happen to offer virtual running events. Want to run/walk one?
Furever Home Running believes in full transparency to reassure participants’ money goes to where we claim it goes. As such, we enter into a Charitable Pledge Agreement (CPA) with each nonprofit animal rescue organization we support. You can view the signed agreement for the current and past organizations the Charities page http://fureverhomerunning.com/charities.
At the beginning of each quarter, proceeds from race registrations are disbursed to the supported organizations. The following quarter, a detailed statement will be posted to show where these proceeds went to support the organizations. Additionally, we will highlight success stories about specific animals so you “see” how you helped via pictures and words.
