On Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 4 the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog® Ministry attended the 40th Anniversary of Leon’s Triathlon in Hammond, Indiana. The Triathlon is held every year to honor wounded veterans by having them compete in swimming, cycling, and running events. Leon Wolek started this event in Hobart, Indiana 40 years ago.
The Triathlon has now grown to be an international event featuring athletes from around the world. The inspiration the families and spectators receive as they witness the bravery of these heroes is incalculable.
Over the two days LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Jael (Trinity - Hobart, Indiana), Michael (LCC Staff), LCC Comfort Dog in-Training Meshach, and LCC Kare 9® Military Ministry Dogs Brutus (LCC Squad) and Nigel (LCC Staff) brought love, comfort and compassion to athletes and spectators alike
