2nd Annual Doggy Dash/Grayce Roach Memorial Walk or Run
There was an unbelievable response from students and staff of Lake Ridge Academy this year for the Doggy Dash. They were there to pay their respects to a beloved friend. Last year, a little over 60 participated in the event. This year over 120 raced and walked! It was both an incredible and touching sight to behold. Below are a few of the highlights from the event.
A beam of sunlight shines down on the tribute to Grayce created by her classmates. The light also fittingly falls on Cowboy, a rescue Border Collie mix at Friendship APL. I am positive that Grayce would have loved this dog…
