GREAT DANE in the MORNING! 5K Benefit Fun Walk

September 13, 2009

Our 3rd Annual walk was held yesterday in the stunning environs of Cherry Creek State Park.  We partnered with FOOD BANK OF THE ROCKIES ‘FURRY FRIENDS FOOD DRIVE’ for the event, which was also sponsored by Denver’s legendary KOOL-105 FM.  In spite of the chill in the air (is fall here already?) and the overcast skies at the beginning of the walk, we had a better-than-expected turnout of both humans and dogs!

With 40 participants in this year’s event and 50 dogs of various breeds and sizes, it was truly a sight to behold!  Those Great Danes, so stoic, moving over the landscape was like watching dinosaurs come to life.  RMGDRI raised nearly $2000 at this event (!), and drew lots of attention.  Next year’s promises to be even bigger!
