Calling all dogs and walkers!
The Boston Volunteers Meetup group is organizing and hosting its first-ever Doggy Fun Run & Walk (2k or 5k) Fundraiser.
Walkers with or without dogs who are pet lovers (including those who might want to walk in memory of a beloved pet) are encouraged to register and experience the wonderful feeling of walking by the Mystic River in early summer with music in the air alongside fellow pet lovers, walkers, volunteers, family and friends who are certainly welcome, vendors on the route and, oh yeah, lots and lots and lots of dogs!
Money raised will benefit the Animal Rescue League of Boston (an organization dedicated to the welfare of animals throughout the city), a proposed dog park in Medford, and the Boston Volunteers (a non-profit organization).
To register or to learn more about the benefit -- for example, the city of Medford will provide vaccinations for dogs that need them for free -- visit the event's main site: www.doggyfunrun.org
Thanks for your consideration and we hope to see you out there June 29th!
