The Fairbanks FFA will be hosting a 5K Mutt Strutt on Saturday, April 30, from 8 am to 1 pm in Pastime Park (off of North Chillicothe Street) in Plain City. All proceeds from the walk will benefit Union County Humane Society’s H.U.G. (Help Us Grow) Campaign. All dogs must be up-to-date on vaccines and on a leash. Any aggressive dogs will be asked to leave.

Registration for the walk begins between 8-9 am with a welcome at 9:30 am. The walk will begin at 10. At 11:30 am there will be a “Rescue Runway” show of dogs that are available for adoption. At 12 pm a dog costume contest will feature categories including Cutest, Seasonal, and Down on the Farm. The cost to enter the costume contest is $5 and prizes will be awarded to the winners. A trade show of vendors will be open from 8 am to 1 pm.

If you pre-register by April 1, you will receive a t-shirt and dog bandana. The donation to walk is $35 per person. You can also accept pledges.  Registration will also take place the day of the event, but with no guarantees that t-shirts will still be available.

The Fairbanks FFA is also looking for sponsors and vendors. A Puppy Sponsorship is $50 and gets you vendor space. A Best Friend Sponsorship is $75 and gets you vendor space, as well as advertisement on posters. A Best in Show Sponsorship is $100 and with that you will receive vendor space and a listing on t-shirts.
