Put Best Paw Forward at Furry 5K

Man’s best friend will get a workout at Saint Francis Healthcare System’s ninth annual Furry 5K and One-Mile Fun Walk Saturday, June 3. You do not need a dog to participate, but dogs are welcome at the event, which benefits the Inpatient Rehabilitation pet therapy program.

“This is a very fun event every year,” says Sandy Duncan, MSA, ACSM, EP-C, manager for health and wellness services at Fitness Plus. “Some people choose to dress their dogs in costume, and some just come to enjoy everyone else’s dogs.”

The event begins at Missouri Running Co., 1720 Kingshighway (off Lexington, behind Plaza Tire) at 8 am. The cost is $25 for every runner or walker whose registration is received by May 19, and $30 for later registrations. All who register by May 19 will receive a T-shirt.
