K9-9K fetches $500 for animal clinic

Wednesday 29 April 2009 | Published in Regional


Wednesday 29: The Esther Honey K9-9K run/walk fundraiser on Monday afternoon raised a total of $500 for the Nikao animal clinic to cover some of its operational costs.

Around 70 walkers and runner and 15 dogs turned out for the event which was well supported by the Hash House Hussies, Hoffsprings and Harriers running club members.

Esther Honey clinic director Karen Galvan says she was pleased with the turnout on the day and hopes that the fun fundraiser will become a bi annual event.

A hamper was also raffled off after the run/walk which was donated to the animal clinic by Kiwi visitors Mick and Jamie Muller worth $200 and won by Jeff Hill.

Galvan says with the success of the inaugural K9-9K fundraiser, she hopes that more locals will get behind future campaigns as it is local animals that are being cared for and treated by the clinic.

Galvan and the team of volunteers would like to thank the Hash House Harriers and everyone that brought their dogs along for the walk for all your support.
