Rain or Shine…Tails Will Wag!

Friday: Early Packet Pickup and Last Chance for Advance Registration

Saturday’s Walk Run Wag will be the biggest yet. That’s great news for our cause, but it also means a lot of people registering or picking up race materials 8-10 am before the race.

We strongly encourage you to pick up your race materials in advance, on Friday, 3:30-7pm, at MADACC, 3839 W. Burnham, West Milwaukee. You can also register at that time.
