Join us for this year's Strut - June 14th (the walk is good for all fitness levels!)
Join a group of like-minded individuals who are dedicated to getting the word out about the plight of stray cats. Enjoy a walk/run along Chicago's beautiful lakefront (for all fitness levels - you can run or if you want to take a leisurely walk that is fine, this event is for everyone who loves and supports the cats). The route is 5K (3.1 miles) and starts at our Uptown Headquarters. We'll then head out to the lake and finish back at our Headquarters for a Post-walk celebration (including a cookout, snacks, entertainment, and goodies) as well as an open house for you to visit our resident cats.
There are several ways for you to participate:
* Walk/run with us on June 14th
