MAY 2016 – President’s article by Jill Riley
The first committee I sat on with the Redlands Chamber Commerce was the Redlands Chamber Night Light Run in 2013. Again in 2014 the brilliant bedazzled runners hit the streets of Redlands. Because of scheduling conflicts last year’s run had to be canceled. So it was back to the drawing board. With a little creative dust sprinkled on the group they have come up with what promises to be a spectacular one of a kind 5-K Run…..for dogs and their two legged partners!!!!! Redlands Chamber Dog Jog Run will have pups and their pals running the streets of Redlands early morning on November 5th at 8AM. Participants will receive a Redlands Chamber Dog Jog T-shirt. Dogs will receive a race bandana and a milk bone and every dynamic duo will get a dog tag at the finish line. This is the first dog jog of its kind held in Redlands. The chamber has partnered up with Redlands Animal Shelter and portion of the proceeds will go to REDFOSA, the volunteer organization that works so tirelessly to help shelter officials find forever homes for our furry friends.
Mark your calendars, if you don’t have a dog, borrow one or even better adopt one from Redlands Animal Shelter. I hope to see you all out there in November. Charley, the Chamber’s Standard Poodle is already in training stop by and gets some tips and fill out a race entry.
