Sharon’s Walk Raises $9,000 to Benefit Humane Society

On May 10, hundreds of people and their dogs gathered in Greeley Park and embarked on a 5K walk to raise money and honor the memory of Sharon Dwane, who died in June 2013 after a five and a half year battle with stage IV colon cancer. During her treatments Sharon took great comfort in her beloved dog, Zoey, who was adopted from the Humane Society for Greater Nashua. Sharon’s family, friends, and co-workers at the Nashua Police Department hosted this inaugural walk to honor her memory and help raise money for the charities she loved.

“Pets provide great comfort and companionship in people in their time of need,” said Doug Barry, Executive Director of the Humane Society for Greater Nashua. “and this generous donation in honor of Sharon and Zoey will help us connect many more pets awaiting adoption with new loving families. Her family tells us this is exactly what Sharon would have wanted.”

Sharon’s Walk will be an annual event with the proceeds to rotate between Sharon’s 3 favorite charities. The Humane Society was honored to be the beneficiary of their inaugural walk in her memory. For more information about Sharon’s Walk please visit their website .
