The Bow Valley Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
Join Us for the 2017 Rocky Mountain Mutt Strut
5k Race, 2k Fun Run/Walk
Help us raise funds for the Bow Valley SPCA. Every $25 we raise supports one dog or one cat for one day. Our goal this year is $15,000 or 2 weeks worth of care for all of our dogs and cats.
Bring your favorite canine companion(s) to 2017 Mutt Strut fundraiser and enjoy the scenic loop from Riverside Park along the Bow River and back. Check-in begins at 10:00 AM in Riverside Park in Canmore, Alberta (participants that have not registered on line may register on-site). The run will start at 11 AM, and the walk a few minutes after 11 AM. There is plenty of nearby parking.
