The TurfMutt Foundation is launching a new event at this year’s Equip Expo and you’re invited to join in the fun! Mulligan’s 5k Fun Run & Walk, powered by Ariens, is stepping off at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, October 19, at the Louisville Waterfront Park, located at 231 Witherspoon St. Louisville KY 40202.
For the past several years, the Kentucky Humane Society has partnered with the TurfMutt Foundation as they host Lucky’s Mutt Madness to help KHS pets find loving homes. Lucky’s Mutt Madness, a national dog adoption event organized by the TurfMutt Foundation and held in partnership with KHS, will once again be held at the Equip Exposition, the international landscape, outdoor living, and equipment exposition. The event will be held Thursday, October 20 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. during Expo, at the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC) in Freedom Hall. Adding to the excitement and momentum of Lucky’s Mutt Madness, Equip Exposition is also holding Mulligan’s 5K Fun Run and Walk to kick off the Expo fun!
Mulligan’s 5K Fun Run & Walk is named after Kiser’s rescue dog, Mutt Mulligan, who is the spokesdog for the TurfMutt Foundation and was adopted at Lucky’s Mutt Madness in 2019. She continues to “paw it forward” by inspiring kids and their families to care for and spend time in their living landscapes, like their backyards, parks and other green spaces.
Mulligan’s 5K Fun Run and Walk, sponsored by Ariens, steps off on Wednesday, October 19 at 7:00 a.m. Participants can run, jog, or walk across the Ohio River over the famous Big Four pedestrian bridge before Expo’s door opens. The entry fee for the event is $40 and participants receive a Nike long sleeve running shirt and everyone that walks/runs will receive 2022 5K Mulligan Medal. Registration ends on October 5 and arrival time is 6:30-6:45 a.m. for a 7 a.m. start. All proceeds from the race will benefit the animals of the Kentucky Humane Society.
