What a fantastic year for RunningDog!
Let's look at our year:
In January, we seated our Advisory Board and started working towards our goals.
(We had a total of 91 official meetings this year!!)
We were also gifted 8 marketing plans from the University of Akron's marketing class.
In June we became an official 501c3 non profit...then the work really started!
In July we not only manned a Burning River Aid station but had an 8 person relay team.
In August we seated our OFFICIAL governance board!
We also were able to take part in Akron Pride for the second year in a row.
In September we had our first big event: PlayingDog!
We also had quite the showing at the Akron Marathon with 2 relay teams and 31 RunningDog Runners! (Not to mention a pretty rad cheer squad!)
In December we had our first ever JingleDog 5k and were able to host 126 dogs!
We also had our second annual Presents For Pups and allowed over 30 dogs to pick out their own gift for the holiday.
And throughout the summer, we set up promotional booths at 12 events...talk about busy!
And we couldn't even count how many orange RunningDog shirts have crossed finish lines this year, both with and without dogs!
Thank you all for your support, we couldn't do it without YOU!
