Staff and students from the Minnesota School of Business-Plymouth were hard at work impacting the Plymouth community on Saturday. Staff and students took part in the Firefighters 5K Run, participated in the Plymouth Parade, helped support the Plymouth Yellow Ribbon effort and volunteered at the American Kennel Club’s Responsible Dog Owner Day event.
A total of 10 staff and students participated in the run, while the massage therapy program was on hand to give free chair massages to participants. After the race, several staff members participated in the city’s annual parade and helped staff the Plymouth Beyond the Yellow Ribbon booth. BYTR is a comprehensive program that creates awareness for the purpose of connecting Service Members and their families with community support, training, services and resources.
Across town, members of the Plymouth veterinary technology program put in a combined 14 hours of volunteer work at the American Kennel Club’s Responsible Dog Owner Day at French Lake Regional Park. The group provided care to over 20 boxers, helping raise a total of $235 for the Minnesota Boxer Rescue – a local non-profit based in Woodbury.
