My Story…

It’s that time of year! Once again I am running the Scotiabank Half Marathon to raise money for Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA) in celebration of my dear aunt Sharon’s birthday! Sharon is a dedicated VOKRA foster momma, who has fostered more than 50 cats and kittens with her partner Doug, providing them a safe and loving spot until they can be placed in their fur-ever home with the help and support of VOKRA every step of the way. VOKRA is a no-kill organization that rescues more than 1400 cats and kitten every single year! They are volunteer-driven and non-profit, so you know your money will go directly to the kitties. Please consider giving whatever you can afford to support the great work VOKRA does. Every bit helps, whether it’s $5 or $50, you know it’s going directly to vet care, food, and necessities for sweet little furry faces who need to find a forever home, and to reducing overpopulation of feral populations.


VOKRA is a volunteer-driven, no-kill rescue association with a mission to end cat overpopulation and homelessness in the Lower Mainland.
