Ride Like an Animal Challenge

We wrapped up our Summer long Ride Like an Animal Challenge event this past Saturday with a celebration at the Ludlow ELks.

There was no rain in site, despite the forecasts showing potential showers. Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with us. We are happy to say that 85 people participated in our first ever scavenger hunt challenge! We received so many emails saying how much fun it was! Thank you to all of our participants and supporters.

We would like to thank the following people for helping us make the Ride Challenge event possible:

Our event sponsors - Kitchen and Bath Design, Keller Williams, Teddy Bear Pools & Spas, Florence Bank, Chicopee Charitable Foundation & Paw Street Barkery.

Thank you to GG Inks for the amazing event t-shirts. Thank you to Michael Smith for providing his amazing musical talent for the afternoon.

Thank you to River Valley Co-op, Randalls Farm, Magic Wings, the Spirit of Springfield, the Springfield Thunderbirds and Six Flags for your donations. Special thanks to Bark at the Moon Photography and Kelsey Thompson for generously donating our special challenge prizes.

Proceeds from this event go to the Foundation for TJO Animals to support the medical care and treatment for the animals in need at the Thomas J. O'Connor Animal Control & Adoption Center.

THANK YOU ALL, and stay tuned for news on next year's event!!
