Update: YAY, TEAM! It was a true team effort. Tamara finished the Houston virtual marathon this past Sunday with a boost from brother Jude: he paid her a surprise visit and rode his bicycle with her as she ran the whole 26 miles! Thank you to everyone who supported Jude and Tamara, with special thanks to those who made donations to the rescue

Running for a reason: To honor the memory of their dad, and to support St. Francis Rescue.

We have posted before about Billy Stovall's invaluable contributions to our rescue. His son and daughter, Jude and Tamara, are running in two marathons this weekend and the next. They say it far better than we can:

“We have registered for the Houston Marathon (Tamara) and Houston Half Marathon (Jude) that will be held on January 9th and 17th, 2021. This will be Jude's VERY FIRST race! We are doing this race in memory of our Dad and to help raise money for a local charity that was so very important to him . . .St. Francis Rescue in Nacogdoches. This organization is a non profit, no-kill animal rescue where our Dad donated his time and love. He spent time getting the dogs ready to go to their forever homes, training them to walk with a leash, to be calm and trusting, and (of course) taking beautiful photographs of them! He felt such purpose and unconditional love with every visit. Money donated to St. Francis Rescue in memory of our Dad will ensure that these animals continue to get the care they so much deserve!! We will run every mile for our Dad (collectively, a total of 39.3 miles!!!) and to help raise money for the dogs and organization he loved! We pray he is smiling in heaven and saying, ‘That's my Scooter’ and ‘Son, what did Tamara talk you into?’”

We are honored that Billy's family has chosen to include us in this tribute to him. If you would like to show your support by donating to the rescue, you can do so by clicking the donation button on this page, or through our website: stfrancisrescuenac.com/donate/

GO TEAM STOVALL!
