2012 Mutt Strut, a charity walk/run to benefit the California Council of the Blind (CCB)
When: Saturday, September 8th at: 9:00 a.m.
Where: Civic Center Plaza- across the street from San Francisco City Hall
The California Council of the Blind is holding its second annual MuttStrut, a 2k/5K run walk/run, on September 8th, 2012 in Sacramento at the Capitol (west steps), Pasadena at Memorial Park, 85 East Holly Street, and in San Francisco at Civic Center Plaza.
Registration for this 2K/5K walk/runwill begin at 8 AM, with the event beginning at 9 AM.
For more than 75 years, the California Council of the Blind has been providing an array of services to persons with vision loss, including scholarships for college students, no-interest loans for employment purposes, mentoring and peer support, information and referral services, advocacy and crisis assistance funding. The Mutt Strut will not only enable the council to continue and expand these greatly needed services, but will provide a fun time for runners, walkers, and dog-lovers.

A big thanks for any assistance you can provide. Me and Avalon hope to see you at Civic Center Plaza on Saturday, September 8th.
