Pre-registration is only $25 and all children 6 years of age or younger are FREE with a registered adult! Day-of-event registration is $35, with T-shirts and goodie bags depending on availability.


After the run/walk with dogs, we will draw bib numbers for fantastic raffle prizes! Snacks, beverages and freebees will also be available. (You must be present to receive awards/prizes.)


All proceeds from this special fundraiser will directly benefit Great Lakes Bay Animal Society’s goal of providing quality care for animals in transition to their forever homes.


Please note that no retractable leashes are allowed at this event for safety reasons. We will have some regular leashes on hand for your use.
