As Pennsylvania’s only all species and farm animal rescue, Indraloka provides “heaven on earth” for 165 animals that have nowhere else to turn. We educate the community, especially children, on ways in which we can better care for ourselves and the environment while helping animals in need.
|A New Way to Help the Sanctuary: Indraloka Animal Sanctuary is pleased to announce that New York resident and sanctuary friend Seth Denberg will be sponsoring Indraloka in the 2013 Big Sur Marathon to be held in Big Sur, California on April 28th, 2013.|
Denberg’s race for the animals almost didn’t happen. After deciding last summer during a family trip to Indraloka that he would run for the animals, he suffered a devastating knee injury over the Winter. At the time of the injury, he had thought it impossible to run a marathon by April, just five months away, especially one as tough as Big Sur, with its huge, steep terrain. The injury required major surgery and several months of intense rehabilitation. Needless to say, Denberg was disappointed that he would miss the opportunity not only to run but to help the sanctuary.
Denberg, a lifelong animal-lover and running enthusiast, decided early on in his rehab that he was progressing ahead of schedule and was determined to make it back to Big Sur after all. By March he declared that he would indeed run and resumed training for the event. About a month before the race, Seth says he feels “better than ever,” and he’s ready to take on the mountains of Big Sur to help the animals! In addition, by sponsoring Indraloka, Seth has offered to personally donate fifty dollars for every one thousand dollars raised.
Denberg says he’s thrilled to be out running again and hopes that people will take notice of the work taking place at Indraloka and show their support by donating to the cause.
Indraloka founder Indra Lahiri praised Denberg’s effort, saying “Seth’s spirit and determination are nothing short of heroic. His efforts to help animals are very much appreciated by us and by them!”
