A special thank you to LCC volunteers Jeff Boberg of St. Paul – Canfield, Ray Pemoller of Immanuel – Palatine, Bob Schwemer of St. Paul – Mt. Prospect, Mike Tellin of Immanuel – Bartlett, and Andy Whowell of St. Peter – Arlington Heights who picked up donations last week.
On Saturday, September 1, Labor Day weekend, LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Aaron (St. John’s – Napa, California) handler Michele Arnold accepted the Everesting Challenge – to pick any hill, anywhere in the world and ride repeats of it in a single activity until you climb 29,029 feet, the equivalent height of Mt. Everest. Michele also dedicated this challenge and raised funds for the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry.
Michele was able to complete an impressive 115 laps totaling 14,566 ft. during her first attempt of the Everesting Challenge, raising approximately $1,200. Wearing her custom jersey featuring the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog logo and a picture of Aaron Comfort Dog, Michele even took time to answer questions about the ministry to others she met during her ride.
The LCC K-9 Ministry is very proud of Michele for this outstanding accomplishment! Thank you Michele for your dedication to the Aaron Comfort Dog team and the LCC K-9 Ministry, and for this generous donation
