Hundreds of registered walkers will lace up their shoes and leash up their pups to show their support by walking 2 miles-starting at the Cummings Dog Park along the Humbug Willow Creek Trail. Join Folsom’s first annual dog walk and pet festival, with or without your pet, to show your commitment towards creating transitional housing for Folsom’s homeless population. You may also register on the day of the event if preferred. The proceeds from this event will go towards funding the construction of six tiny homes in Folsom, with a goal of $150,000. Go to HartofFolsom.org for your direct donation.
T-shirts will be handed out to each registered participant (limited sizes available) and scarves for your dog(s). Additional T-shirts can be purchased at the festival. Dress your doggo to the nines as there will be a costume contest and other activities throughout the morning. This is a family friendly event and face painting, balloon creations, and food will be available. HART of Folsom is a non-profit community-based volunteer organization seeking to assist individuals that are making the conscious effort to better their lives and get out of homelessness by providing transitional housing and supporting wraparound services.
