Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue will host a two-part event: the first annual “Run-Walk Four Paws 5k” and the Grife Law Firm’s “Doggone Easter Eggstravaganza” on Sunday, March 22 at Bryant Park in downtown Lake Worth. People and pets are invited to attend the fundraising event, which will include live music, food, vendors and shopping all day.
The Run-Walk Four Paws 5k will open registration at 6 a.m. with the pre-race warm-up beginning at 6:30 a.m. The 5k race kicks off at 8 a.m., and the walk starts at 8:30 a.m. The awards ceremony will take place at 9:30 a.m. Dogs are encouraged to participate, with a $5 per dog fee. Goody bags are available for well-behaved four-legged racers. A shirt and goody bag are included for runners/walkers.
The Doggone Easter Eggstravaganza will feature two Easter egg hunts for a $5 participation fee per child to benefit the nonprofit animal rescue. Event highlights will be a Pet Easter Bonnet Parade and Contest, free for all pet participants, as well as photo opportunities with the Easter bunny. Any participant who locates a hidden golden egg will win a grand prize. Space is limited for the egg hunt, and pre-registration is suggested at www.justinbartlettanimalrescue.org.
