A 1 Mile Dog Walk for families and children, sponsored by The Veterinary Cancer Center of Norwalk, will take place on September 20 at 8:30am at the Run Walk for Health & Hunger presented by Athletic Shoe Factory at Chelsea Piers Connecticut in Stamford. The event will follow a 5K Run at 8:15am. The entry fee is $40 per adult plus three nonperishable food items and $20 per child (14 and under) plus one nonperishable food item. A family entry fee for two parents and up to three children is $80 plus four food items. There is no charge for dogs and they must be kept on leashes during the 1 Mile Walk. All dogs must be up-to-date on vaccines. The food and $5 from each entry fee will be donated to The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County.
