We encourage all to bring their service animals and pet dogs to the Mutt Strut as long as they are on leash and under control at all times. If you do not have a dog, do not worry, we welcome all for the FUN Run/Walk.

There will be opportunities to check out vendors, enjoy live entertainment, participate in a dog costume contest and a raffle, and much more.

While at the event, don’t forget to take advantage of the Crescenta Valley Community Regional Park offerings.  The park is nestled in a green tree-filled valley providing community access to a beautiful natural area of native California flora and fauna. People who frequent the park call it a “hidden jewel”. Enjoy the many different paths of the Run/Walk within this landscape.

Formed in 1934, the California Council of the Blind (CCB) has become the largest organization of people with visual impairments in California. CCB is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) statewide consumer organization.  Its members are blind, low vision, and fully sighted individuals who are concerned about the dignity and well-being of people with visual impairments throughout the state.  Through a variety of programs and services, CCB enables people who are blind or have low vision to live and work independently and to participate in their own communities.  The Council has influenced change in such areas and issues as civil rights, employment, rehabilitation, transportation, environmental access, travel, recreation, Social Security, and other benefits. CCB receives no government funding and relies on private donations to continue to carry on the organization’s programs and services. Money raised from this year’s event will assist in the operation of CCB’s valuable resources and programs which have benefited many people with visual impairments throughout the years.
