WCGHS – Hike on the Dike SUCCESS!

The West Columbia Gorge Humane Society’s fundraiser was a HUGE success!  With the generosity of family, friends and my colleagues from Market Strategies I was able to contribute $200 to the WCGHS!  $200!!!!  Thanks so much to all those who contributed!  I was really proud to walk this event and walk I did!  I walked the entire event walk time and both Blizzard and I were extremely beat at the end.  Luckily I had my support team with me; Mike (my husband) Finnegan (my son) and Braewyn (my 16 month old daughter).  We had to take a break for water and swimming but otherwise we were zooming!  It helped that the event location was absolutely spectacular; the Pacific Northwest at it’s finest!

There was plenty to do besides the walk and we had a great time.  We got to see a K9 Police demonstration, visit with the shelter dogs and Blizzard was declared (unofficially) the most adorable dog at the event!

I cannot express my gratitude enough to those who sponsored a pledge for Blizzard and I.  Enjoy these photos from the event!  Can’t wait until next year!

  1. I think the “World’s Best Poop Scoop” sums it right up. And now I’m giggling madly. :)!
