Dogs should only run for fun

Dear Friends,


My name is S. Matt Read and I work as the Research Director for GREY2K USA Worldwide. I am excited to let you know that I will be running a marathon for the greyhounds in just a few days! 

That’s right, I am signed up to race in Quebec City on Sunday, August 27 and would love to have your support. I've been trying to qualify for the Boston Marathon since 2015 and will be aiming for a time of under 3:15:00. 

Sponsor Matt

Our Run for Fun campaign is a great way to help raise campaign funds to end greyhound racing. Are you inspired to run, bike, race or walk for the dogs as well? Then please join me by launching your own fundraiser now!

Just set your race length, donation goal and choose an event date that is convenient for you anywhere in the world. Race on your own or start up a team of animal advocates. Heck, you can just go for a long walk or run and ask your friends and family members to sponsor you. It’s that easy!


Raise $250 or more in donations and receive a GREY2K USA medal. If you collect $500 for the greyhounds, we will also send you a Dogs Should Only Run for Fun mesh shirt and coordinating socks.


Here's how it works:

Run 4 Fun

Contact us to set up your fundraiser when you are ready. 

By choosing to participate in your own personal race or supporting my marathon, you are helping ensure that someday dogs will only run for fun! 

For the greyhounds,


S. Matt S Matt Read signature
