James and Sharon Pierce are getting their tandem bike tuned up and ready to ride across Iowa again. This is the third year they will be joining the thousands of cyclists participating in RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa)—and the third year they will be encouraging people to sponsor them with a donation to Friends in memory of their late cocker spaniel, Max.
Last year, their 471-mile cross-country adventure brought in nearly $5,000 to help Chicago’s neediest animals. We can’t thank them enough for the passion and drive they bring to our organization. Hundreds of adoptable animals from Chicago Animal Care and Control are getting out of the city shelter and into the foster homes they need, thanks to “Miles for Max.” James and Sharon, you have our heartfelt thanks.
