Mutt Strut 2023

Join our dog-friendly fun run to support Hand in Paw!

The crucial role that emotional support plays in healing is an accepted fact in medicine and treatment. Research has shown that emotional support can have a significant impact on the healing process. For example, patients who receive emotional support have been found to experience less pain, have shorter hospital stays, and recover more quickly from surgery.

One form of providing emotional support is Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) which is a type of therapy that involves interaction between animals and humans in a therapeutic setting. A non-profit organization, Hand in Paw, has made it their mission to improve human health and well-being through Animal-Assisted Therapy. They have an upcoming event on Earth Day that needs your support.

Earth Day is going to the dogs at Mutt Strut! Hand in Paw’s 13th Annual Mutt Strut: Dog-Friendly 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run will take place at Homewood Central Park on Earth Day, April 22nd!

Grab your furry friend and join Hand in Paw for a day in the great outdoors full of exciting races, contests and vendors – all while supporting a wonderful cause!

5k: $30 • 1 mile fun run: $25
