ST. LOUIS, March 13, 2023 ~ Tennis superstar Venus Williams and her dog Harry have teamed up with Purina Pro Plan to launch the "Monday Like a Pro" Challenge. The challenge encourages active dog owners to log one million collective minutes each week, with Pro Plan donating $15,000 (up to $150,000) to Athletes for Animals for each week that the goal is met.

The challenge will run from March 13th through May 21st, 2023 and will be supported by Team Pro Plan, a group of content creators and award-winning athletic pros including gold medalists Shaun White and Nastia Liukin along with pro football player Drew Brees. Each week they will issue weekly challenges for pet parents nationwide to log active minutes with their dog, whether it's running, hiking or playing fetch, and experience the advanced nutrition of Pro Plan Sport.

"My dream is for Harry to have the longest life possible," said Williams. "So I make sure he gets the nutrition he needs to keep him happy, healthy and by my side. I'm excited to partner with Pro Plan because not only does the nutrition of Pro Plan Sport provide high-performance fuel for active dogs like Harry, but we're also giving back to dogs in need through the 'Monday Like a Pro' Challenge."
