Walking to rescue

The second year for Grove City councilman Ted Berry’s 5K Rescue Walk/Run for animals proved to be double the fun, funds, and amount of human and four-legged fans. According to Berry, nearly 400 walkers and runners and nearly 160 canines participated in this year’s event on Oct. 7 at Breck Community Park, raising more than $11,000 for Speak for the Unspoken and the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Here were a few scenes captured during the event.

The Great Pyrenees Vladimir basks in the shade. Unlike many other of his fellow canines, Vladimir did not participate in the rescue walk. Instead, he supervised in the free nail trim tent.
