Do you want to help make a difference in the lives of animals and people? Do you believe what we believe? Furever Home Running’s mission is to make a difference in the lives of shelter animals and people in mutually beneficial ways:
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.
If this aligns with your outlook and you are interested in contributing your time, we’d love to hear from you about becoming an Independent Brand Ambassador. This is a non-compensated role; however, there are rewards! In exchange for spreading the word about Furever Home Running’s races, all Ambassadors will receive:
- 10% off all race registrations during their Ambassador duration
- Free registrations or merchandise for referrals based on a point system
- Early notification of specials and offers
- Insights and input into Furever Home Running’s races
How does it work?
Ambassadors help promote Furever Home Running’s races throughout their networks – we’ll even provide you with some marketing material to help the cause. Each Ambassador will have a unique code to give to prospective participants, which will be used in their registration process. Each time someone registers for a race using an Ambassador’s code, that Ambassador will earn one point. Additionally, Ambassadors earn points by volunteering for sanctioned promotional events or donating to nonprofit animal rescue organizations.
These points accumulate throughout each calendar year and quarterly, Furever Home Running will provide each Ambassador with a points statement. Ambassador can redeem points for race registrations or Furever Home Running merchandise at any time during the year. Additionally, at the end of the year, awards and prizes will be given for different categories.

Meet Our Ambassadors
Meet Furever Home Running’s First Independent Brand Ambassador – Christina Todd! Read her story:
“I currently reside in West Memphis, AR. I am 42 and in October 2016 I was at my waviest weight – 260 pounds! I felt horrible and couldn’t tie my shoes without grasping for air. I decided enough was enough. I started walking to work and then I would walk around parking lot on my breaks. Eventually, I got into a routine of waking up at 2am every morning to walk five miles. If it was raining, I carried an umbrella. I changed how I ate and started to lose weight. Now, I am 104 pounds lighter and haven’t felt better!
In the last year, I’ve ran over 30 races and my first ever virtual race was the Furever Home Running State Capital Series Austin, TX race. I chose this race because they support a cause I believe in – animal rescue. Their website hit close to home for me, as I have five rescue animals (cats), who are my furbabies.
I am excited to be a Furever Home Running Independent Brand Ambassador so I can help spread the word about their cause.”
Read about Ben Hinton, a very active Independent Brand Ambassador:
“I reside just outside of Pittsburgh, Pa in an area called the South Hills. In January 2013 I sustained a traumatic brain injury. I started my running journey that year, completing my first half marathon. I have ran various distances from 5k’s to the 26.2 ever since. Running has changed my life. The running community has helped me to ‘Be Encouraged Everyday, to Encourage others is to Encourage ourselves.’
My wife and I have four adopted animals (2 dogs and 2 cats). Animals often times can offer more encouragement than even humans! We adopted our first dog Atlantis a year to the day after my injury in 2014. I will never have a stronger bond with a dog. Furever Home Running helped me organize my first virtual race to help raise awareness for brain related injuries. It was very shortly after that I was honored to become a FHR Ambassador. Running and the running community is the best place to change your life and encourage others lives at the same time. To be an ambassador for a cause to that helps out our furry loved ones is an opportunity I couldn’t run past.”
