About Loops for Leah Virtual 5k
Loops for Leah is a fundraising effort to benefit Ohio House Rabbit Rescue (OHRR) and their Adoption Center. Leah was a very special bunny, whose Mom was Shannon Morrison. In memory of Leah, Shannon is tackling a 12 hour run with a loop that starts and ends at the OHRR Adoption Center.
You can join in this effort to help the bunnies by participating in the Loops for Leah Virtual 5K. Run (or walk) anywhere you are and go 5K (or more or less – whatever distance you want to go). Post your run/walk on Facebook to promote rabbits as companion animals – and this fundraiser!
Ohio House Rabbit Rescue (OHRR) is dedicated to sustaining a Center in Columbus Ohio for rescued abandoned pet rabbits, offering a robust adoption program, and providing educational resources and programming on the proper care of house rabbits. OHRR envisions a community where all pet rabbits live indoors as companions and have access to a proper diet, habitat, and regular veterinary care for the duration of their life. In Central Ohio each year more than 900 unwanted pet rabbits are offered for surrender at animal shelters or rescues which have no space for them – or they are just released outdoors. OHRR seeks a better alternative.
Loops for Leah, organized by the Ohio House Rabbit Rescue is being held to educate and build excitement around rabbits as companion animals, while also raising money to help abandoned pet rabbits. The proceeds of this race will go toward the Ohio House Rabbit Rescue Capital Campaign to help OHRR pay off the Adoption Center.
