Bark for Life raises over $1K

WASHINGTON — In spite of rainy and cool conditions, the North Daviess Schools Relay for Life team raised $550 and Friends for Animals, a not for profit charity operated by volunteers to help dogs and cats in the area, raised $1,700 during Bark for Life Saturday.

“Friends for Animals and North Daviess Relay for Life are both incredibly thankful for all the support area businesses and community members have shown us. This event would not have been possible without the generosity of the entire community,” said Monika Glade, coordinator of the first year event.

The event, in its first year, included a competitive 5k run and one mile dog and family walk as well games for kids, pet photos and contests and a silent auction.

“We are blown away by the totals,” said Glade.

A total of 27 runners had registered for the event but cool weather and rain kept some participants away. Randy Archer was first to cross the finish line in the 5K. Kenneth Cales was second, Samuel Strange third, Ruth Graber fourth, and Katie Klym fifth.

Over 40 walkers and their four-legged friends hit the pavement for the one mile walk. Several of the runners took part in the walk as well.

“Despite the rain, we had a great turn out and everyone really enjoyed the event,” said Glade. “Overall, the event was a huge success. We are looking forward to putting on a Bark for Life event next year, and hopefully with better weather.”

The Daviess County Relay for Life will be held June 14 and 15 from 6 p.m. until 11 a.m at Lena Dunn Elementary School. For more information on Relay for Life contact Billie Jo Allen at 254-1159 or visit RelayForLife.org.
