The Seattle Animal Shelter presented its 15th annual Furry 5K at Seward Park on Sunday, June 8th, and members of the Weber team showed their support.

 The Furry 5K is the Seattle Animal Shelter's largest fundraising event. This year, the event raised a total of $98,000 for the Help the Animals Fund (HTAF), which pays for veterinary care of sick and injured animals at the shelter.

Ruth Kapcia, a Senior Account Manager at Weber Marketing Group, is a long-time volunteer for the Seattle Animal Shelter and a past Race Director for the Furry 5K.

Justen Weber, one of our art directors, donated his time and talent to design the look and feel for this year’s event.  

“I wanted to capture the positive spirit and movement that this event stands for," said Justen. "Our model rescued-dog, Cheney, was the perfect symbol of this. Done with an expressive pallet-knife technique in a vibrant color pallet – this design demonstrates the raw energy and joy of the Furry 5K.”

Karen McGaughey’s daughters Caroline and Gracie attended the event with their Girl Scout troop.

Samantha, Ben Stangland’s daughter, also completed the 5K with her neighbor’s dog Tula.
