New Leash on Life 5K Dog Run/3K Walk
Living with mental illness is difficult, with feelings of anxiety and loneliness common. However, there is hope at the end of the tunnel. For many, a pet dog or cat not only serves as a companion, but also helps calm the stress, fear and apprehension often involved with mental illness.
Over the past eight years, the New Leash on Life event has raised more than $200,000 to help improve care for the people and animals we work with. The generosity of participants and sponsors has allowed our organizations to help hundreds of individuals to achieve a better quality of life. Together, we are making a difference.
You can be a part of this effort too! Zumbro Valley Health Center and Camp Companion are collaborating to sponsor our 9th Annual New Leash on Life 5K Dog Run/3K Fun Walk. This unique event, where the 5K dog run is timed to the first dog across the finish line, provides funding to support the thousands of people and animals our organizations serve each year.
We look forward to seeing you on the 22nd.
