(Lander, Wyo.) – On Sept. 14, runners, walkers and pets converged on the track at Lander Valley High School for the fourth annual Lander Pet Connection Walk-A-Thon and 5k Dog Dash.
LPC Board Member Devon Petersen and board President Deborah Ellis said this year’s 5k had more competitors than last year, though the Walk-A-Thon had fewer competitors.
Micah Whiting won this year’s 5k.
In all, Ellis said LPD netted about $5,400 from the event, which compared to last year’s event and expenses was nearly the same. The funds, Petersen and Ellis said, will be put toward day-to-day operating expenses.
“We really appreciated everyone coming out,” Ellis said, also thanking sponsors for helping to cover the event’s expenses.
