Nortek President Running Half Marathon in Support of A.D.O.P.T. Animal Shelter

At Nortek Environmental, Inc., we pride ourselves with always trying to do our best to give back to the community. One of our passions at Nortek Environmental, Inc. is helping out our furrier family members. At Nortek Environmental, Inc., we’re all huge pet lovers and couldn’t imagine life without our pets. If you have been keeping up with our blogs, you’ll remember that during this past summer, Nortek Environmental, Inc. had a 2 week long campaign in which we raised 600 pounds of food to donate to A.D.O.P.T. Pet Shelter in Naperville, IL, which is located about 2 blocks away from the Nortek Environmental, Inc. office. Well, Nortek Environmental, Inc. is at it again!

Last summer, Nortek Environmental, Inc. President Lisa Averill, began taking up running as a hobby and as a way to exercise. Well Lisa hasn’t stopped running since then! She has already participated in her first 5K and is looking forward to many more races to come! Lisa has decided and committed to running her first half marathon this fall! Aside from just running a marathon for personal reasons, Lisa is also looking for support from the community with her endeavor because Lisa has a goal of raising $1,000 to donate to A.D.O.P.T.

“As most of you know for many years I have donated my time and money to several animal shelters. Last year in August what started out as a few long walks and motivation from a dear friend ended up as a beginning of my running with my “Prada Rose”. My dog taught me how to keep a pace and push me when I thought I couldn’t run any further. She waited every morning at 4:30am to venture out for a run. My training and love for running began. In November I ran my first 5K in memory of my father with my youngest son beside me and my friends and family welcomed me at the finish line. This year I am going to train and run a half-marathon (13.1 miles) in support of A.D.O.P.T. I am asking you to take a minute and donate whatever you can to this great cause! A.D.O.P.T. is a no-kill pet shelter and works to find animals a new home. I am honored to be running for such a great cause and hope to see you at the finish line! I know I can do this and with your help we both can be a huge success.”

Any donations would be appreciated, but we would equally appreciate you taking the time to read Lisa’s page and maybe even share this to your friends and family members on social media.

We appreciate you for taking the time to read this blog! And as always, thank you for choosing Nortek Environmental, Inc.!
