Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - FRONT PAGE - By Pete Ban­nan pban­nan@21st-cen­tu­ry­media.com @pe­te­ban­nan on Twit­ter

Ch­ester County teens from Gym-Olympic Sports Academy Gym­nas­tics Team in Exton kicked off the third an­nual Na­tional Dog Show Char­ity Walk at Wil­son Park in Tredyf­frin Sun­day by walk­ing on their hands while walk­ing their dogs, the leashes at­tached to the gym­nasts’ an­kles. The gym­nasts have been prac­tic­ing their feat since sum­mer­time.

After show­ing off their unique tech­nique, they flipped onto their feet to con­tinue the 1-mile walk, which ben­e­fits an­i­mal wel­fare char­i­ties and the Philadel­phia Ronald McDon­ald House.

The dog walk kicks off Na­tional Dog Show Month in Philadel­phia, lead­ing to the an­nual Ken­nel Club of Philadel­phia Na­tional Dog Show Nov. 19-20 at the Expo Cen­ter in Oaks. For in­for­ma­tion, visit nds.na­tion­al­dogshow.com/
