On August 10th Roselyn Sanchez, Judy Reyes (former star of the comedy series Scrubs), Edy Ganem and Rebecca Wisocky– along with actor/singer Jencarlos Canela, actor Julian Gil and singer/actress Ana Isabelle–were among the approximately 100 participants who banded together in 20 teams to embark on the Amazing Paw Paw Race Puerto Rico. The invitation-only quest began at the Hotel Caribe Hilton and travelled through six municipalities, complete with a cook-off of the Puerto Rican dish mofongo; zip lining; mazes and other obstacles to raise funds for, and awareness of, PetSOS– an organization which offers comfort, care and the hope of a forever home to some of the more than 100,000 companion animals who are living on the streets of Puerto Rico.
The Amazing Paw Paw Race was developed by Roselyn Sanchez’s RS Events for Life Foundation, which was established by the star to help both children and animals in need. Money raised from the race will make great strides in modifying a no-kill animal shelter and will help PetSOS’s annual spay/neuter drive for animals in shelters or in families who are facing financial hardship.
