Strut for Strays™

Saturday, May 14, 2016

Join us for the 21st Annual Strut for Strays, hosted by Evanston Subaru in Skokie
Please note the new event location

On Saturday, May 14, dogs and their guardians will make their way to Evanston Subaru in Skokie for the Community Animal Rescue Effort’s annual Strut for Strays. Hundreds of paws and feet will hit the ground walking (or running) for the 2.5-mile event. Grand Marshal Christian Stolte (from NBC's Chicago Fire) will be on hand to get the Strut started.

Help us raise money to care for the many animals that C.A.R.E. finds homes for each year.

WHO IS INVITED
Fun-loving people, with or without a four-footed canine companion. Although cats and other pets are not allowed, you can run or walk in honor of a favorite animal friend.

WHERE IS THE WALK?
The walk starts at Evanston Subaru in Skokie (3340 Oakton St - West of McCormick Blvd). Look for the C.A.R.E. event signs.

The walking route starts at Evanston Subaru in Skokie and heads East across McCormick (crossing guard present) and up the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park to Dempster Street. TURN AROUND at Dempster and head South in the Sculpture Park back to Oakton, then West to Subaru. If your dog is tired or your feet are barkin', you can turn around at any point and head back to Subaru.

Parking is available at Evanston Subaru in Skokie (follow the parking signs).
