Sara Evans has connected with the Nutro Company for their Room to Run Dog Park Appreciation Project. The program helps organize pet owners with a mind to raise money for dog parks on their local communities through grant money applications.
"When I was approached to work with this program, I was immediately excited because we have a dog that is the love of our lives. He's very important to us, he's like our eighth child. One of my favorite things to do with him is to take him to the dog park to run. So I thought this was just such a great thing they are doing. You can go online and register to receive a grant to make your local dog park better with improvements. They are giving 30 grants to improve dog parks -- it's a really cool project," said Evans.
She adds that spending time with her dog Roman helps her keep in shape:
"Spending time with my dog -- he's a calorie burner. But I'm a tennis player -- it's a sport that I picked up about four years ago. I've always been an athlete -- I play all kinds of sports. I stay skinny by playing sports, mostly tennis, and I count my calories. I'm a firm believer in calorie counting. I don't think any food is off limits, but my thing is like, 'Stop eating so much!' When I cut back on eating, it works."
