Dogged dog owners brave rain in cancer fundraiser

A pack of dedicated dog owners braved heavy rain on June 16 to run, roll and swim with their dogs in the first annual Woof-Fit Mini Triathlon at Balmy Beach.

After running 2 km along the boardwalk, dozens of dog owners then rolled on bikes, roller blades and scooters along the Martin Goodman Trail before boarding dinghies, kayaks and paddle boards for a short lap on Lake Ontario.

The campaign raised $13,000 for the Smiling Blue Skies Cancer Fund, part of the University of Guelph’s efforts to find a cure for canine cancer.
