A goldendoodle named Dozer escaped his yard back in May 2011 and joined a half marathon that was right outside his house. He finished the race, a bit confused and muddy, and then ran all the way back home. Since he crossed the finish line, this furry fundraiser has raised over $17,000 for charity!

This story goes to show how anyone can be a fundraiser, and that a little bit of publicity can go a long way!

If Dozer can do it, so can you.
