Arthritis Walk

Saturday, May 31, 2008

The Arthritis Walk® is the Arthritis Foundation’s annual nationwide event that raises awareness and funds to fight arthritis, the nation’s leading cause of disability. This year they decided to have dogs walk as part of the event. Tom and Diane Ward and Dawn Roelofs joined the Everything and the Dog team to walk in the event. Our team was the number one teaming raising $4,000 for the event. The team wore T-shirts that were purchased by TLC (The Life Centre Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Care Center). The dogs were given blue scarves to wear. Tom and Duke walked 3 miles, while Diane, Dawn, Tina, Lola (Italian GH) and Amy walked the 1 mile. Everyone had a great time and of course Tina, Duke and Amy attracted allot of attention and their humans answered many questions about the greyhound breed.
