Denver Dumb Friends Leagues Wag 'n Trail marks the 9th year for this event that will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 8:00 a.m. until noon. The 1.6-mile hike for people and their pups will be held at Glendale Farm Open Space north of Castle Rock. All the money raised goes to help the homeless pets at the Dumb Friends League Buddy Center. Grab your hiking boots, hat and your dog’s favorite leash, and follow the trail of wet noses and wagging tails. The goal is to raise $140,000 this year.
Plan now to participate; sign up early, and then start collecting pledges to earn prizes. There is no registration fee but participants are encouraged to collect pledges. Each person, and their dog, hikes the trail at their own pace. If you can't participate donations can be made to help support this event to help homeless dogs. If you raise at least $75 in pledges, you will receive a limited-edition, long-sleeved Wag `n Trail T-shirt, ice cream for you and your dog, and a professional photo of you and your hound hiking along the trail. As a thank you for raising more pledges you raise, you have the opportunity to earn more prizes.
Following the hike, animal lovers can enjoy Ruff flyball demonstrations and refreshments, as well as purchase pet-related merchandise and food from local vendors. There is also a five-acre, off-leash dog park located near the trail head.
Wag 'n Trails has enjoyed great success throughout the previous 8 years. There are 19 sponsors dedicated to helping insure the event this year also meets participant's and DDFL's expectations.
