Brighton resident Serena Queeney walked 120 miles over the weekend to raise money for dog rescue organization K-9 Angels. The 67-year-old athlete credited her plant-based diet for helping her build stamina for the event—which consisted of her walking one-mile loops 120 times around the Brighton city center for approximately 60 hours. “After rescuing my little chihuahua Frankie, I wanted to help dogs any way I can,” Queeney told The Argus. “I’m walking in one-mile loops around Grand Junction Road and past Habitat where my good friend Judy, 84, will keep track of laps.” Queeney set up a donation page to support K-9 Angels and her daughter Suzie, along with a few dogs, was at the event to collect donations, as well.
