This righteous one-mile Mosey around the Fox River Preserve and Marina raises the much needed funds to save the lives of senior dogs and cats in area shelters. This year, your funds help us build a safe haven for those senior pets, too! We've got prizes for Top Fundraisers, Top Team Fundraisers, Top Business Team, Best Dressed Human, Best Dressed Dog, 50/50 raffle, bucket raffle, scrumptious Bake Sale, and more, all set to the fab tunes of the 1960s. So lace up your groovy walking shoes (or go-go boots if you're really brave!), register to walk, and start fundraising to save senior pets!
