The Family Resource Center is hosting Puppy Love, a 5K fun run/walk Saturday, August 15th, 2020 at Johnny Appleseed Park in Elko. In addition to raising funds for valuable FRC programming, it promotes physical exercise and socializing with runners, walkers, and dog lovers in a fun community event―all for a good cause!

The event is open to all participants, with or without a dog. The registration fee is $35 the day of the race or $30 for pre-registration. Participants registered prior to August 1st are guaranteed an event shirt in their preferred size. Children under age 16 may run/walk, at no charge, with a registered adult; if children under age 16 want an event shirt, they must register.

There will also be a variety of sponsors with pet- and/or sports-related merchandise and services. Awards for dogs include Top Dog and Friendliest Pup.
