Mutt Strut 2012 - Los Angeles
The Second Annual California Council of the Blind 2K/5K Los Angeles Region run/walk Mutt Strut will be holding its 2012 annual event on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at Central Park, located at 275 South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena, California.

Following the run/walk, lunch will be available for all of the participants along with vendors and entertainment. Additional food/snacks/drinks will be available at an additional cost.
The registration fee for this event will be $20 for children ages 5-12, $25 for untimed runners/walkers, and $50 for timed runners/walkers. We urge all runners/walkers to bring their service animals or pet dogs with them as long as they are on leashes and under control at all times; however, you need not have a dog in order to participate.
We look forward to seeing all of you at the Mutt Strut on Saturday, September 8, 2012 for a lot of fun, door prizes, fellowship, and, of course, the 2K/5K race. This is also a great opportunity to assist the California Council of the Blind in its annual fundraiser to help serve persons who are blind in Southern California.
