We will be running this event in memory of Anthony M. Capobianco - a young man who loved dogs all his life but lost his life to muscular dystrophy at the age of 36. The event will go a long way in helping to save more dogs, educate more people and provide a forever friend to more families something Anthony wished for every day. The event is expanding to include three sessions of options including: 10K or 5K Run, 5K walk, yoga, basketball, kickball, ultimate Frisbee, BANG! Power Dance and cross fit workouts for adults and children. Register early at http://goo.gl/dRd1wI
