Event Recaps:

On Sunday, June 8, the Delaware Valley Stroke Council held its 20th annual Strides for Stroke 5K Run/Walk. The event, fully planned by Jenna Communications, was an overwhelming success. Nearly 1,000 runners and walkers participated and helped raise awareness for stroke, the fourth leading cause of death and number one cause of adult disability. Also, we owe a big thank you to all our sponsors, including: Parx Casino, Trader Joe’s, ShopRite, Modells, Yoga Garden, EMS Entertainment, KIND Bars and J&J Snack Foods. See Strides for Stroke coverage on NBC 10 and 6abc.

Jennifer Sherlock joined No Dog Gets Left Behind’s founder, Trish Gohl and Lauren Shields at Serrano for Spay-ghetti, a special vegetarian dining experience for a good cause! Funds raised from Spay-ghetti benefited PAWS’s spay/neuter efforts for stray animals in the City of Philadelphia.

Saturday, June 8 was filled with charitable causes for us. Max, a young supporter of No Dog Gets Left Behind, held a dog walk at Wissahickon Valley Park to benefit the organization as a part of his Bar Mitzvah. Families and four-legged friends alike enjoyed the picturesque trails throughout the park. Although the dog walk has ended, Max will continue to fundraise for No Dog Gets Left Behind, and donations can be made HERE.
