The Doggone Fun Run includes a competitive chip timed 5K Run (without dogs) and a 5K and a 1 mile Fun Run/Walk (with or without dogs). There will be medals for age group winners of the competitive 5K Run along with prizes for winners of the ‘canine costume competition’. Come early and stay late to peruse vendor booths, enjoy DJ music, learn tips from a local dog trainer, and more.
Take advantage of early registration through March 13 for $25 per person or $75 for a family of three or more. Registration fee increases after March 13. Each registrant will receive a t-shirt and a bandana for their favorite dog. On race day, t-shirts and bandanas are only available while supplies last. Dog owners must ensure canine participants are on a non-retractable leash and must show proof of current rabies vaccination. To register for the event go to www.fortbendcares.org.
Fort Bend Cares, a charitable foundation, has raised over $1.2 million dollars over the last 10 years to support nonprofit organizations that serve disadvantaged children and youth in Fort Bend County. This year, Fort Bend Cares will donate a small portion of proceeds from the Doggone Fun Run to the Sugar Land Animal Services shelter.
