Canine 4K Run/Walk
The 29th Annual LAPS K94K was SO much fun! Runners and Walkers looped around Frisco under a perfect CO sunny morning and then rewarded their loyal furry sidekicks with a Starbucks Puppuccino and a dip in the cool doggie pools afterwards. Caricature artist, Lauren Floden, did such life-like images of the pooches that she had to take a list of names home with her to finish all the portraits...here's hoping she'll come back next year! Paw Painting and Doggie Contests and a HUGE Silent Auction, along with our Flea Market rounded out the day of activities and everyone (even the pups!) enjoyed the music and entertainment provided by Randall McKinnon.
This year's proceeds went way over our usual fundraising mark and we collected over $25,000 from our generous Sponsors and participants and had a great group of Vendors and volunteers to make this the most fun ever...Thank you ALL!
A Big Thanks to our K94K Sponsors, Vendors and Supporter!
