This year’s America’s VetDogs “Long Island Run & Dog Walk” will be held on Saturday, July 30 at the Old Bethpage Restoration Village. This is a timed 5K run. If you are not a runner, there is a 2 mile dog walk (bring your dog if you have one).
America’s VetDogs trains guide and service dogs to provide independence, enhanced mobility, and companionship to veterans with disabilities from all eras. It costs over $50,000 to breed, raise, train and place one assistance dog, but America’s VetDogs provides its services completely free of charge to each veteran.
The details of the run are:
7:00 a.m. – Registration (Pre-race breakfast)
8:00 a.m. – Welcome Program
8:15 a.m. – 5k Timed Race Begins (Dog Walk begins immediately after)
9:15 a.m. – Post-Race Awards
D&B is a sponsor of the event and will pay the registration fee for all employees and their families.
