Hoofin it for HART’ companion walk

HART would like to thank everyone who participated in the 17th annual companion walk on May 5. About 100 walkers and their canine companions raised money and walked for the HART animals. A total of $21,000 was received from participants the day of the walk and generous sponsors before the walk.

Thank you to Dr. Molly Anderson-Krahn and her husband Travis, for hosting the sloppy Joe fundraiser. This is always a big hit with everyone. The King and Queen pageant had many cute entrants again this year.

A new event this year was an old fashioned Cake Walk. We had 150 walkers and made $150. Thank you to the Board of Directors for donating the beautiful cakes. The kids really enjoyed this event.

Thank you to the Brainerd Kennel Club for their obedience demo. It is always so refreshing to watch these well trained canines.

Thank you to the following for making this event a success: Tess Taylor and Billy Holiday (WJJY and 103.5 Oldies radio stations), Jan Germann, Education Director, HART staff, HART volunteers.

Make your calendar for the next big HART event, the 25th Anniversary, Aug. 11 from noon to 3 p.m. at the shelter.
