THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF GREATER MIAMI

INVITES MIAMI TO SUPPORT

WALK FOR THE ANIMALS, PRESENTED BY PET SUPERMARKET

MIAMI, FL—December 14, 2011– Walk for the Animals, presented by Pet Supermarket, is scheduled for Saturday, February 18, 2012 at Bayfront Park (301 North Biscayne Boulevard) and is an exciting and worthwhile activity for the entire family–and, of course–dogs. The Walk is the Humane Society of Greater Miami’s largest annual community event, attracting over 3,000 people.

This year’s Grand Marshall is District 4 Miami-Dade County Commissioner, Sally A. Heyman. The Leader of the Pack is Associate Vice President and Controller of University of Miami, Theresa L. Ashman, and for the fourth year, the event’s emcee is WTVJ – NBC-6 meteorologist, Ryan Phillips.

There will be fun-filled activities for the entire family, including all of our furry friends. Sponsors will be offering music, games, prizes, product samples, and great food. There will be a special Bakery Tent filled with mouth-watering pastries to be enjoyed with a fabulous cup of Coffee Brake coffee. YUM!

Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. and entertainment will be provided from 9:00 a.m. ‘til noon. The one-mile stroll around the park (with or without a dog) begins at 10 a.m. The minimum donation for an individual walker is $50 and includes a Walk t-shirt, a fabulous goodie bag and doggie bandana. Or, form a Pack (team) with your family and friends and receive personalized Pack goodies! Big Dog Packs are for walkers 18 years of age and over and Proud Pup Packs for those under 18. The Pack raising the most money will be recognized at the event with a special surprise. For more Walk information, visit www.humanesocietymiami.org, or to register, go to www.firstgiving.com/hsgm.
