The second annual “Fast & Furriest” 5K fun run and one-mile walk is taking place at the HART Animal Center on Saturday, June 30, to benefit HART for Animals. Each participant who registers before June 24 will receive an event T-shirt and a goodie-bag. Participants may run or walk with or without their dogs.
“Last year’s event was a huge success,” says “Fast & Furriest” co-chair Debbie Beitzel. “It’s heartwarming to see our community come together for such a good cause.” Candy DeGiovanni, event co-chair agrees. “People came out to run, walk, and support HART and their mission. Many brought their four-legged runners too!”
Registration is $30 for the 5K run and $20 for the one-mile walk. Registration after the deadline is $35 for the 5K run and $25 for the one-mile walk. Children under 10 may enter for free but will not receive a T-shirt.
The top three 5K runners across the finish line will each receive a prize. For more information and to register, go to www.hartforanimals.org/events.
