First Ever 'Paws-A-Tively' Best Dogs Walk Held in Lynchburg

Lynchburg, VA - It was a perfect day for the first ever Riverside Runners' "Paws-A-Tively" Best Dog Walk Saturday.

Dogs of all kinds joined their walkers on Rivermont Avenue from 9 to10 a.m. to benefit the Lynchburg Humane Society.

The entry fee was $25 and included a doggie goodie bag. The Riverside Runners also sold $1 raffle tickets for a new dog house.

"We understand that Riverside Runners customers are inspired daily by their special four legged friends. We looked at this walk as an opportunity to support our beloved animals and the Lynchburg Humane Society,'' said Jeff Fedorko, owner of Riverside Runners.

"This walk seemed like the perfect opportunity to get folks up and outside walking with their four-legged friends," added Sarah Williamson, an advocate for Riverside Runners.

Williamson estimates 45 dogs took part in Saturday's walk.
