The Staff Council formed a UNM team, Leaders of the Pack, to participate in the Doggie Dash & Dawdle (DDD), Saturday, Nov. 2 from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Balloon Fiesta Park. DDD is Animal Humane's signature fundraising event which enables them to continue saving the lives of homeless pets throughout the year.
UNM and non-UNM people are all welcome to join the team by encouraging family, friends and co-workers to sign up to participate in a 5K run or a two mile dawdle with or without a canine partner.
Throughout DDD, participants can enjoy vendors' wares, doggie carnival games, contests, music, food trucks and more. The registration fee is $35 per participant and that includes a race bib, an event t-shirt and a doggie surprise. Individuals don't actually have to participate in the race to join the team, they can sign up as a "virtual dasher" and help the team raise funds from the comfort of a computer.
The goal is to raise funds for Animal Humane so sign up as a member and donate any amount to help the team help Animal Humane.
