A man is raising money for a dog rescue by combining his two passions: running and his three-legged boxer, Lucas Alexander Pekoff is running 600-miles as a fundraiser for the Adopt A Boxer Rescue in Scranton, Pennsylvania, which helps boxer dogs who are abused or abandoned. The charity has a special place in his heart because it’s where he got Lucas.
Pekoff set off in New York state in his sneakers with plans to run from Niagara Falls to Montauk Point. He hopes to raise $11-thousand for Adopt A Boxer Rescue by the time he wraps up and has a GoFundMe pagefor donations.
"It's my first time doing this for a cause, and I'm really happy that I chose this one," Pekoff explains. "They are really nice people, and without them, I wouldn't have my dog."
