Cedar Pet Clinic Lake Elmo staff and friends recently had an opportunity to engage in a most memorable and laugh-filled event--The Hit and Run 5K. This event raised money for Fraser, a center providing support to children and families for over 60 types of disabilities, including Autism. Competing in an obstacle course of gargantuan proportions, Dr. Plantz, Kathleen, Maggie and a friend spent their morning bouncing, climbing, ducking and balancing their way through over three miles of fun.

As much fun as Dr. Plantz and team had, likely our staff and friend cheering section, led by Dr. Baillie, shared the most laughs watching the events unfold. A lot of water, extreme tests of balance, and many slips and slides helped to ensure no shortage of giggles as our fearless contestants strategized through the course.

Check out our slideshow below to catch a sense of the fun we had representing Cedar Pet Clinic Lake Elmo in this event. We’re already formulating our training regimen for next year!
