Now here’s an event that is a true mix of a LOT of good stuff . . . a love for animals, the spirit of community support and encouragement of a healthy lifestyle for both humans and canines!

It will be held at the Jefferson County Fair Park in Jefferson and there will be plenty of fun on that day for both participants and spectators!
