Thompson's West End was bright and blue and festive as pups of all shapes, breeds and sizes brought their humans to celebrate CHA's First Annual Strut Your Mutt 5K. Park Campers had a front-row seat to the race and were treated to a wave of blue as pups and humans displayed their blue colors.
Doggies were outfitted with their own Strut Your Mutt bandanas & their humans displayed matching T-shirts. The event, the first for our shelter was a huge success!!!! We look forward to next year's event. We received great positive feedback from everyone and great suggestion to get us started with next year's planning. Among them are expanding the prizes to include an award for Most Funds Raised Medal & a special Top Mutt Red Bandana, which of course comes complete with Bragging Rights for a year, a ballot box so participants can vote on best dressed mutt, and many more - rest assured, we are listening!
