This past Saturday was the Humane Society of Berks County‘s 32nd Annual Walk for the Animals and Walktoberfest at the Reading Phillies baseball stadium. The weather was really nice and sunny (first time in a few years for them).Â Lots of dogs and their people showed up to walk, have fun and raise money to help the Humane Society. I wasn’t going to do it again this year because I had heard they were leaving Reading, but I spoke with someone at the Dogs Days of Summer Fest and that was not the case. So a week before the event I signed us up for the walk and to raise funds through FirstGiving.com like I did last year. Since I had only started looking for sponsors a week before the walk I did not expect to raise too much money, but thanks to my best bud Boris and his online pals over at Twitter and facebook I was able to raise over $300! ($320 in sponsors + my $20 for registering not a bad contribution if I must say so myself). I am very honored to know these amazingly generous people and their pets here on the net. Thank you all!
Don’t worry if you missed sponsoring my walk the fund raising page online is available and we’ll be taking donations until December sometime. So please consider a donation no matter how small. Every little bit helps.
There’s even more photos over on facebook.
