Heather Bedingfield of Heather’s Fur Babies Daycare and Boarding is sponsoring a fun, family race/walk to raise money for the Chase Away K9 Cancer Foundation. The event is in memory of her Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, Remy, who passed away from bone cancer in June.


The event takes place on Saturday, Sept. 29, at 10 a.m. at Hickory Grove Lake, Plover Picnic Area (southwest corner of park by the maintenance shop), in Colo. The entry fee is $20 per person — children 12 and under, and all dogs are free. All proceeds will go to the Foundation.


There are three ways to register: 1) online at www.GetMeRegistered.com/RemysRun — there is an additional processing fee involved, 2) go to www.furbabies4.com to download the race form (click on Forms at the top), and send it in with your check to Heather’s Fur Babies, 24541 670th Ave., Nevada, 50201 or 3) register the day of the race.


The cost of registration is the same if you register by mail or on the day of the race. However, if you do not preregister by Aug. 18, you will not receive a T-shirt.


This is a fun run, so it is not timed, but prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers — humans and dogs.


Come on out and enjoy a fall morning, with or without a dog, for a worthy cause.
