A special thanks to our presenting sponsor Hill's Science Diet and our Gold Sponsor Feeders Supply, our media sponsors WDRB, WXMA, Tails Magazine and the LEO - and to all the wonderful, fabulous, hardworking and cheerful volunteers who helped make the day a success, including the Ignite Louisville team, and the wonderful individuals and teams who raised money for the walk or 5K run.
