Claire Froumis recently hosted her 9-year-old birthday party and, in lieu of gifts, raised $165.25, two boxes of bones, one dog bowl and a bag of dog food all for the animals at the West Michigan Humane Society. She coordinated a relay race/game party with games that she thought up: scavenger hunt, bunny hop races, find the missing pets with hidden pictures of the humane society cats and dogs around the neighborhood, dog bone races, “Who Let The Dogs Out” Just Dance contest, etc.

“She was so thrilled with the success, and we’re proud of her selflessness,” said her mother Holly.

Claire was inspired by her brother, who, two years ago, skipped his own birthday to have a fundraiser for Relay for Life.
