This year I'll be dashing in memory of my dog Mitra, who helped me through some of the roughest times of my life. Sadly, Mitra passed away at the beginning of April 2020 from cancer that had metastasized from breast cancer we thought had been eradicated. One of her favorite events of the year was Doggie Dash, so it feels fitting to do it in her honor this year. Hug your pets for me, and if you can spare some change, consider dropping a donation here!
OHS brought her into my life, along with my parents' two canines, Pluto and Goofy. (Yes, they came with those names, and no it wasn't intentional haha)
