Singer Mýa on Team Animal League
They’ll run NYC Marathon to raise money

Grammy-award winning singer Mýa takes on new challenges every year. In the past she has tried hang gliding and starting off the new year by jumping off a Brazilian cliff. This year, running the ING New York City Marathon will be among her adventures.

She is undertaking this challenge to raise money for North Shore Animal League America in New York, for which she is a spokesperson. Fifty runners are on Team Animal League, whose collective goal is to run the 26.2-mile race and collect $200,000 from people sponsoring the effort. The money will be used to support the Animal League’s mission, which includes saving the lives of as many companions animals as possible and promoting education to encourage adoption of animals and reduce cruelty to them.

Kudos to Mýa for her commitment to companion animals and may she have a great experience on race day, November 6, 2011!
