On Wednesday, June 24, all Summit County Summer Reading Program participants will meet at the Main Branch in Frisco at 10:30 a.m. to begin the Super Stroll to benefit the League for Animals and People of the Summit.
A small donation of $1 is requested from each participant in exchange for a super hero bracelet. All funds raised will benefit LAPS, with planned contributions toward the local Summit animal shelter. In preparation for the Super Stroll, students attended last week’s Every Hero has a Story program and made capes to wear. All participants and animals are encouraged to wear their capes that they made to portray their favorite super heroes.
If your child or family brings your pet, please also bring their proof of a rabies vaccination, and plan to sign a waiver on site for the walk. The Super Stroll is a one-mile walk up and down the bike path by the County Commons.
In addition to the walk, the Summit County Library will have a kiddie obstacle course, where students can pretend they are dogs doing agility tests — running through tubes, jumping through hoops and weaving through cones. The best obstacle-course winners will receive ribbons for “Best in Show.” Also, the local police are bringing a sniffer dog to meet all super heroes, and avalanche rescue dogs, therapy dogs, reading dogs and more will be on hand. The staff will discuss with the attendees what the super hero dogs do on a daily basis.
Randall McKinnon will perform, face painting is available and several Summit County residents will disguise themselves as Wonder Woman and Super Girl. Popsicle treats will end the day’s events.
