There Goes My Hero II
For four weeks this fall, the fittest and fiercest competed in WOD Ops There Goes My Hero II, a series of CrossFit competitions in the metro area hosted by the Georgia Fitness League (GFL). The winners had a chance to battle it out at the finals at CrossFit Kennesaw. And for the second year in a row, all the proceeds from the competition were donated to Pets for Vets Georgia!
Our volunteers were there each week to cheer on the athletes and tell people about our wonderful cause and where the hard-earned money was going. All in all, Georgia Fitness League event organizer Josh Patterson and the GFL raised over $1,000 for us, making Josh and the GFL a very proud Pets For Vets Georgia Sponsor!
And the good news didn’t stop there. Because this second collaboration went so well and Josh believes in our cause so much, he asked Pets for Vets Georgia to be the official charity of the Georgia Fitness League. To which, of course, we responded to with an enthusiastic “Woof!”
Congratulations to all the event winners and thanks to Josh and the GFL participants for your ongoing support of Pets For Vets Georgia!
Hops Stroll in Decauter, GA
At the Hops Stroll in Decauter, GA, we celebrated the end of the sweltering Atlanta summer with cold beers and by raising money for Pets for Vets Georgia! This two-and-a-half hour event took place at three different breweries: Wild Heaven, Blue Tarp and Three Taverns.
Participants were able to sample great beer and munch on delicious food provided by local eateries Square Pub, Melton’s App and Tap and Slice and Pint—all for $35! Each of our 50 participants received a Pets for Vets glass from which to sample all the beer.
Jake Adams, Wild Heaven’s tasting manager, said the reason he wanted to participate in this event was that he has family in the military and a rescue dog of his own. “Everyone wants to do a fundraiser but you can’t always find a good organization to do it for. You want to help something you care about and [Pets for Vets Georgia] just makes sense.”
Russ Yates, co-owner of Slice and Pint, echoed this sentiment. Russ said he was happy to help out by providing Slice and Pint’s delicious pizza, not only because of the great cause but also because it gave him an opportunity to participate with other community businesses.
At the end of the day, bellies were full, thirst was quenched and Pets for Vets Georgia raised over $1,700! Thank you to everyone who participated.
Hyperflite Skyhounz Disc Championship Qualifier
More than 70 high-flying canines competed at the Hyperflite Skyhoundz Disc Championship Qualifier in Pooler, GA. This fun and exciting fundraiser, organized by Chief Master Sergeant Jim Fox USAF and sponsored by TailsSpin Pet Food & Accessories (located in Pooler, Savannah and Macon, GA) raised a whopping $4,000 for Pets For Vets Georgia—our biggest fundraiser to date!
Dogs and their handlers, including Jim Fox and his Border Pawtrol (Riley, Rocky and Dexter) competed in the freestyle routines, time trials, a bull's eye game and the amazing Xtreme Distance event. Check out pictures of these frisbee-loving canines in action here!
Thanks to everyone who contributed their time and energy to make this such a successful event, participants and fans for your generous donations and Wag the Dog for donating $125 of your proceeds to our organization. A very special thanks to Jim Fox and TailsSpin's owners, Jusak Bernhard and Jeff Manley, for your incredible $4,000 contribution! These funds will be used to rescue and train companion dogs for Georgia Veterans.
