4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Today I met with my project facilitator Cindy Gossett. We talked about what needed to be done for my event, The Doggie Dash. We picked the date March 4, 2017 to have the event. We planned to have the event at Hobgood Park and we talked about the things I needed to do to make the event successful.
This was exciting but also somewhat stressful. It was exciting because I was excited about hosting my event but it was stressful because there was a lot of things I needed to do for the event. I had no idea an event would take so much planning.
This is a picture of me and my project facilitator Cindy Gossett. In this picture, we are planning what I will need to do for my senior project. We picked a date and made a list of things I needed to complete.

6:00 pm -7:00 pm
Today I created a flyer to get the word out about my Doggie Dash. I tried to make it catchy so people would want to attend the event. I included all details about the event so people could start planning to come to the event. I also included what the Doggie Dash was for and explained that all funds would go to the Cherokee Humane Society.
This was not hard to do but I wanted to make sure I got all the details on it so no one had any questions. I also then posted it on all my social media because that is the best way to get the word out because everyone has social media now-a-days.
This is the flyer I sent to people and posted on my social media. I created it using Microsoft Word.
In this picture I am creating the flyer. I am at Starbucks where I often do my homework.

6:00 pm- 8:00 pm
Today I designed my t-shirt for the Doggie Dash. I used the website CustomInk. I knew I wanted to make the shirt maroon because I felt that was a good color that boys and girls would wear. I wanted to have a dog somewhere on it. I decided to put the picture of a dog on the front and I put a slogan on the back. I came up with the cute slogan “Saving one dog one dash at a time” because my event was the “Doggie Dash.” It took a lot of time because I moved stuff around to make it look exactly how I wanted it to look.
Creating a t-shirt was fun but also difficult. It was difficult because I knew what I wanted it to look like in my head but it was hard to design it on the computer. I’m happy how it turned out. The design I came up with was better than the idea I originally had in my head. Designing the t-shirt was one of my favorite parts of my project.
In this picture I am creating the t-shirt using the website CustomInk. It is a very easy and helpful website to create shirts.
These two pictures are of the tshirt I designed. The front is a picture with a dog on it and it says “Doggie Dash.” On the back it says “Saving one dog one dash at a time” and a paw with a heart in it.

1 hour 30 min
Today I went shopping for the things I needed for the actual event. I got water bowls for the dogs, felt to make the numbers for the runners, posters to make signs, dog treats, and water for the dog’s owners. Before I left I made a list of what I needed. I went to the dollar store and Walmart.
I did not like this part of my senior project. Shopping was stressful because I had to find all the things that I needed and for decent prices. The only fun part of shopping was that I was getting closer and closer to hosting my event.
This picture is of the dog bowls that I got for the Doggie Dash. My plan is to place them around the Hobgood track so the dogs have access to water during the run.
This picture is the felt I am going to use to make the numbers for the dog’s owners who are participating in the event.
In this picture, I am looking at the dog treats and dog bones to figure out what I was going to put in the goody bags.
In this picture, I am looking at poster boards to decorate for my event.

Today I created a sign that I was going to hang up at the event for my senior project. I made it very colorful so it would look good at my event. I used paint markers to create the word “Doggie Dash.” The paint markers made it very easy to make it look good.
I liked this part of my project. Creating this sign was fun and gave me a chance to be creative. I am not very artistic but I am very happy with the way the sign came out.
In this picture I am starting the sign I made for my event. I am writing the words first in pencil. I then went over the pencil lines with paint markers. The paint markers made it an art project without the mess.
This is a picture of the finished sign.

12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Today I made the numbers for the dog’s owners who were participating in the event. I cut the felt into 8 sections and then put a number on each one. I then attached a safety pin to each one. The safety pin would attach to the owner’s shirt. I made 40 numbers just to make sure I had plenty for people who came to the event.
This part of my project was frustrating because I am a perfectionist so each section had to be the same size. Making the numbers took me so much time. I also had to be creative in how I made these numbers because I couldn’t find the stick-on numbers.
This is a picture of the eight sections ready to be cut out.
In this picure it shows how the owners of the dogs will attach the numbers to their shirts. They are big numbers so they are easy to read.
This is a picture of all 40 numbers cut out with the safety pins in them ready to go.

2:00 pm – 3: 30pm
Today I created the goody bags for the dogs who participate in the event. I made about 45 goody bags. They each had a handful of treats in them.
This was an easy task but very time consuming. My dog did not enjoy me creating the goody bags because she wanted to eat all the treats.
In this picture, I am making the goody bags with cute striped bags and a variety of dog flavored treats.
In this picture is all the finished goody bags and the basket I will use to transport them to the event.
In this picture, I was almost done making all the goody bags.

6:15 pm – 7:00 pm
Today I created a sign-up sheet for the people who will attend the event. I used Microsoft excel. I made four columns. One column was for the owner’s name. The second column was for the dog’s name. The third column was for the owner’s t-shirt size and the fourth one was for the owner’s phone number. I also made a sign in sheet for Beta Club members because if you attend my senior project you receive two beta club points.
This was difficult for me because I did not know how to work Microsoft Excel, so it took me time to figure it out. Once I figured it out it was easy. I printed many of the sign-up sheets just so I would have plenty for the event.
This is a picture of the sign up sheet. Everyone will sign up at the event and receive a number.
This is a picture of the Beta Club sign in sheet. I hope many Beta Club members attend the event.
In this picture I am struggling to figure out Microsoft Excel. Once I figured it out it was very simple.

7:30 pm – 7:45 pm
Today I ordered the t-shirts. The reason I waited till today to order them was so I had somewhat an idea of how many people were going to attend the event. I should have ordered them earlier though because now they won’t arrive until after my event. I ordered 35 shirts. I plan to deliver the shirts as soon as they came in.
I wish I had ordered the shirts sooner because I am upset they won’t be here for the event. I learned that when you order t-shirts you should do it with lots of time for them to come in.
This picture is a screenshot of the tshirt before I ordered them. I finalized them and made sure everything was perfect.
In this picture, I am ordering the 35 shirts for my event.

8:45 am – 11:45 am
Today was the day of the Doggie Dash. I arrived at Hobgood Park at 8:45 am. There was a lot of things I had to do to set up for the event. I set up the sign-up table and hung the Doggie Dash sign I made. I then set up a blue tent with start and finish signs on them. I also set up a table and put the goody bags and water for after the dash. I went around the hobgood track and set up dog bowls with water for the dogs. It costed $15 to run/walk in the race and you received a t-shirt and a dog goody bag. Around 9:55 am people and their dogs started to show up. The Doggie Dash was to start at 10:00 am. It took some time to get everyone signed up so the Dash started around 10:20 am. The dogs’ and the owners walked around the hobgood track twice which was about a 1 mile walk/run. Some owners and their dogs walked while others ran. I had 21 dogs run/walk the Doggie Dash. The winner of the Doggie Dash was Gracie. Daisy got second place and Quin got third place.
Today was so much fun but very stressful. It was fun to see how my hard worked payed off but it was stressful because I wanted everything to go perfectly. I was happy with the turnout of the event and how smoothly it ran. I also received lots of donations along with the money the dogs and owners paid to participate in the Doggie Dash. It was a very fun event and I learned a lot from hosting it.
This is a picture of me and my project faciliator helping people sign in for the event. When they signed in they received a number to pin to their shirt.
This is a pictue of the first-fourth place winners.
This picture is the start of the Doggie Dash. Everyone started and finsihed at the same spot and at the same time. As you can see the dogs were very excited about starting the dash.

12:30 pm – 12:45 pm
The event was complete so it was time to count all the money I raised for the Cherokee Humane Society. I raised a total of $330.
I do not like math so counting the money was not fun for me. It was exciting to see how much I made to donate to the Cherokee Humane society.
This is a picture of me counting the $330 I collected from people participating in the Doggie Dash and donations I received.

3:30 pm – 4:30 pm
The shirts arrived today so I went around delivering them to the people who participated in the Doggie Dash.
It would have been a lot easier if I had ordered the shirts earlier so I could have handed them out at the event but it was okay because even though I made that mistake it all worked out. Everyone was happy to receive their shirt.
This is a picture of me delievering the shirts to everyone who participated in the event.

3:45 pm – 4:45 pm
Today I delivered the check to Humane Society. The works showed me around and I got to see how much my donation was going to help.
This by far was my favorite part of my senior project. It was so amazing to see how much I helped the Cherokee Humane Society.
Picture with me and project facilitator handing the check to the Humane Society.
Taylor Almyeet. I hope many Beta Club members attend the event.
