LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, TV/radio personality Maria Menounos and digital health company Rally HealthSM teamed up with Westside German Shepherd Rescue to host a dog walk in Griffith Park in Los Angeles to promote healthy living and the health benefits of pet ownership.
The 1.5-mile walk started with Menounos, a Rally Health Ambassador, addressing participants about the fitness and emotional benefits of having a dog. She also talked about how her own dogs helped her through her health challenges in 2017.
“Today was a fun and heartwarming event. It is such a gift to be able to help others by sharing the story of my health journey, which includes my dogs. They bring me so much joy and ensure that I get exercise every single day. I’m grateful to them for that and wish the same for other people,” said Menounos.
The event was co-sponsored by Westside German Shepherd Rescue, a no-kill animal rescue nonprofit in Los Angeles dedicated to finding permanent and loving homes for German Shepherds and other dogs.
“Our Rally team, including Maria, was thrilled to be able host this special event. It’s our goal to help people live healthier lives, and we know that pet ownership can make a big contribution to that,” said Brenda Yang, SVP, Rally Health.
