Run with the Big Dogs 5k

Our race was yesterday. It was a huge success, and a ton of fun. It made me proud of to be part of such a wonderful organization!

Adrienne Burdette- Signage
Susan Nichols- Kiddie Pools

Liz Dalzell- Music- You guys rocked it today!
Brian Dew- who drove a box truck, loaded & unloaded it 4 times, brought home 5 carts that saved our lives while set up/tear down, stayed up to midnight the night before listening to me stress out than woke up at 4:15 with me, and distributed water AND gave the Blessing of the Animals!!
