Turner Valley/Black Diamond….There will be a lot of wagging tails on the Friendship Trail on Saturday, June 11th as ARF-WALK gets underway at 11:00a.m. This event is a fundraiser for Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) and there will also be “dog games, fun activities and prizes” following the walk.
The event is being organized by two grade 8 students from Millarville Community School who are busy putting up posters and getting prizes donated. “My sister and I are organizing this event as our exit project from grade eight. It’s going to be lots of fun and we hope to get many people to come out. You don’t even have to have a dog to participate,” says Becky Levine. She’s co-organizer of this event, along with her twin sister, Sarah. People can gather pledges or make donations.
The Friendship Trail runs three km from Turner Valley to the nearby town of Black Diamond. Participants will follow the trail to Black Diamond and back to Turner Valley’s Gazebo where the games will be held, starting at 12:30p.m.
Dogs can even compete in a “singing contest”, be measured for the longest tail or perhaps be judged as furriest dog of the day! There will also be a “bobbing for hotdogs” contest…dogs, not people!
Come on out and help ARF to make a difference for abandoned animals!
