Cedar Bend Humane Society Hosts “Furry 5K” In Cedar Falls
It's a tail-wagging event that the Cedar Bend Humane Society does for a good cause!
For nearly fifteen years, the Cedar Bend Humane Society has hosted a "Furry 5K" to provide ongoing medical care for some of the residents of CBHS.
The CBHS event is open to all animal lovers and their dogs! Event participants, both furry and otherwise, will run twice around the scenic Big Woods lake in Cedar Falls. There will also be a whole bunch of sponsor booths AND family-friendly activities.
The event will take place on the morning of Saturday, May 20th at Big Woods Recreation Park South Shelter. Participants are encouraged to start arriving between 7:45 AM and 8:45 AM for the race which kicks off at 9 AM.
Some safety considerations for the event:
- No retractable leashes
- Leash lengths should be no longer than six feet
- Do not bring any female dogs in heat
- Dogs must be current on their vaccines
- Dogs MUST be on a leash at all times
If you don't have your own pup to pal around with, they will have some of the adoptable dogs out for you to meet!
Registration is $45 a person and children under five can participate for free with a registered adult. To register for this fun and furry event, just click over here and you'll go to the Furry 5K ticket page.
