Love Dogs? Come to the Doggy Dash in Davis

The Chester Foundation is pleased to be a supporter of the Doggy Dash and Golden Valley Harriers’ Labor Day Races at UC Davis on September 7th.

The event will be held in Davis’ Central Park starting at 7:45am and will benefit the Faithful Partner Fund at the UC Davis veterinary hospital. The fund was established earlier this year with matching donations from both UC Davis’ School of Veterinary Medicine and Police Department to assist with the medical costs of treating K-9 officers, as well as search and rescue dogs, wounded or injured in the line of duty.
