Be a Running Hero

Now that summer is slowly starting to wind down and those Back to School sales are picking up speed, there's no better way to bask in the tidings of the season than a good run. If you're the kind of person who likes to climb rocks, walk on tightropes or take your dog for a 5K, then the Helping Dogs Helping Heroes 5K is right up your alley. In an effort to kick off International Assistance Dog Week, Paws and Stripes have put together this little fun run for those who want to show their athletic chops and those who want to do something special with their canine companions, all while supporting military veterans, of course. The event will have food trucks, family activities and dog washes. The run itself is dog-friendly, so you and your barking buddy can go for the gold together. The sprinting commences on Sunday, Aug. 3. Check-in is at 7:30am, and the race starts at 8am at the Aperture Center Park at Mesa del Sol (5700 University SE). To participate, adults pay $30, and it's $15 for young ones ages 10-15. Be sure to stretch. (Mark Lopez)
