Merrill on the Move Dog-Walk-A-Thon set for Saturday

Dogs have no excuse not to exercise with you. With that in mind, The Lincoln County Humane Society invites dog walkers of all ages out to the the Lincoln County Fairgrounds for a benefit walk at 10 a.m. Saturday, rain or shine (or sleet?).

Johanna Hoerstmann volunteers at the humane society, and she wanted to make sure kids got involved in the Merrill on the Move Dog-Walk-A-Thon. Participants can bring a dog to the event and choose between a 1/2-mile, 1- or 2-mile route. There will be other dogs that might need to be walked if someone does not own one to bring.

"I wanted the kids to get out and get moving," Hoerstmann said.

One walking route will include a stop at Pine Crest Nursing Home, 2100 E. Sixth St.

The entry fee is $5, and all the proceeds and pledges will benefit the Lincoln County Humane Society. All participants will receive a dog-related gift and a coupon for free bowling.

Call 715-536-5841 for more information.
