Merrill on the Move Walk-a-Thon

The Lincoln County Humane Society is proud to team up with "Merrill on the Move" Dog Walk-a-Thon. The community event will be held on Saturday May 21st at the River Bend Trail. Registration begins at 10am, rain or shine. The entry fee is $5.00 per person and all the proceeds will benefit the Lincoln County Humane Society.

Studies show exercise programs are more successful if you have a partner, and what better partner can you get than a dog! Dogs are always happy to walk. This is also a great way for kids to be part of a community event involving animals while also developing an exercise routine that can last a lifetime.

The 5K walk/run will be a qualifying event for employees who participate in their health management incentive program. Employers realize the cost savings when their employees live a healthy lifestyle. Many offices have a sedentary culture and studies show that sitting is taking a major toll on employee health.

Ask your friends and family to support your efforts by having them sponsor you! You can email us at manager@furrypets.com to get a pledge sheet or find it on furrypets.com under the Documents  - Miscellaneous section.  Any amount is grealty appreciated!
