The 1-mile dog walk/fun run designed to not only raise funds for both of these organizations, but will help raise awareness about the benefits that dogs can have for families living with autism. People are welcome to walk with or without a dog. The course will be a repeated loop around the lot. Registration is $25 per person. The event will also include dog games, prizes and local organization booths. There will be a raffle for a cypress rocking chair, custom grill or $100 gift card.
