Social Summit: 130 wagging tails at 25th annual LAPS Canine 4K in Frisco
On Saturday, Aug. 1, 130 dogs and 160 of their human friends took part in the League for Animals and People of the Summit’s 25th annual Canine 4K Run/Walk, starting at the Frisco Historic Park Gazebo on Main Street. This year, the event raised a little more than $15,000 for spay/neuter and medical/surgical financial aid programs in Summit County.
“LAPS is an all-volunteer organization with not much overhead since the board members use their personal computers and phones for LAPS business, and we have no physical office space to pay for,” said LAPS president Sally Beerup. “And, that means almost 100 percent of any monies raised at events, donated or received through grants goes directly back to local families.”
This year’s event included live music from Randall McKinnon; a free agility course set up for everyone to try their skills; a huge silent auction/flea market with restaurant and store certificates, pet products, jewelry and sportswear, a misting tent, doggie pools and more.
