From the Georgian Triangle Humane Society: “On September 22, 2019, the Georgian Triangle Humane Society held its 7th Annual Friends for Life Walkathon. The event took place at the beautiful Blue Mountain Village; despite the forecast, the weather held off which enticed families and dogs alike to attend. Highlights of day included Paw Patrol mascots Marshall and Chase, as well as Sparky who tagged along with the Town of the Blue Mountains Fire Department, face painting, a GTHS Alumni Zone, a pet costume and best trick contest that was loads of fun, live animal readings and an “ask the expert” booth featuring GTHS’ dog school trainer! With the help of our fabulous community – participants, sponsors, in-kind donors and volunteers, we’re excited to announce that this year’s Walkathon raised over $59,000! Thank you to the event volunteers, the Walkathon Committee, and all of our Sponsors. A special thank you to our 2019 Walkathon Committee Chair, Monika Merz. This event was only possible because of her unwavering leadership and guidance.” Photos: Dave West Photography
