The Rundown

 

When/Where



Sunday, May 7, 2017 from 4 – 7pm at Crystal Lake Park in Urbana Rain or Shine!  

 

What 


A fundraiser and celebration of All Things Dog: A dog walk plus music, doggie activities, contests, prizes, food trucks, and beer by Triptych Brewery!  Businesses support through sponsorships and in-kind gifts. Register to walk your dog and create a fundraising page to help raise much-needed funds for the humane society.


Why

 

Because dogs need your help!  Funds given through the Mutt Strut help the Champaign County Humane Society take care of over 1,000 dogs a year.  They receive veterinary care, soft beds, toys & treats, training, and loads of love - and then are adopted to awesome families who spoil them rotten and bring them to events like this one, where they spread love and goofy-dog-joy to the world at large.  Who wouldn't want to be a part of THIS?

Schedule 

4:00 p.m. Registration (Don't Forget: Bring Rabies tag/Certificate!)
4:45 p.m. Welcome & Announcement of Top 13 Fundraisers 
5:10 p.m. Strut begins! More games, fun, & beer immediately after the walk.
