"Paws 4 the Cause" Dachshund Dash
New to the event will be
a costume contest for all breeds of dogs. The costume contest
will be held prior to the start of the races.
Over 40 dachshunds dashed
to the finish line during the inaugural Paws 4 the Cause event.
Organizers expect the athlete count to grow this year. A race
held annually in Oklahoma City was not held this year making room for
growth in the Enid race. The dash is just for fun
with trophies being awarded to the fastest racers. Registration
is $20 through September 09, 2011. The registration fee increases
to $45 after September 9th.
All dachshund athletes must be current on their shots and cannot be
aggressive. Athletes who register before the 9th
are guaranteed to be in the official racing program.
Entry forms may be obtained from the Paws 4 the Cause website paws4thecause.com
or the Groom Closet, 2005 West Chestnut Avenue.
Sponsorships and booth opportunities
are available for the event and can be secure by phoning Lynne Benkendorf
