Record Breaking Turnout for "See Spot Run" Event in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- It was a record breaking turnout for the 11th Annual "See Spot Run 5k - Fun Run and Doggie Dash."

Organizers said close to 600 people and their pets registered at Sherman Park in Yakima Sunday.

All of the proceeds go straight to the Humane Society of Central Washington and help pay for their spay and neuter projects.

Runners said they want to help lower the large stray population in the county.

"It's a huge problem," said Steffi Coleman. "I don't know how many times when I drive to work, I see a dog in the street criss-crossing. It breaks my heart."

People could run with their own dogs or take one of the many pups up for adoption.

Up to $12,000 were expected to be raised Sunday.
