Sunday, June 2nd, 9am – Barks & Belts 5K

Evergreen, CO, May 17, 2013:  Evergreen Animal Protective League and Drive Smart are pleased to announce their 2nd Annual Barks & Belts 5K Walk/Run on June 2nd, 2013. We were thrilled with the attendance of vendors and especially racers for last year’s inaugural event, and this year promises to be even bigger and better. Come join us for a scenic run through Bergen Park followed by music, fun, pet contests, food, and libations. Vendors will be on hand to share their wares, handing out samples, swag and information. All proceeds for the event will go to two local non-profits: Drive Smart and Evergreen Animal Protective League.  These diverse and well-respected non-profit organizations do so much for the people and animals in our mountain community, so be sure to show your support and join us.
