Mutt Strut Returns to Indianapolis Motor Speedway
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway will experience a different kind of roar in April, and the origins of these sounds will be four-legged rather than four-wheeled. The 12th annual Mutt Strut takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 25, giving participants the opportunity to walk the famous 2.5-mile track traveled by motor racing superstars.
Mutt Strut is the largest annual fundraiser for the Humane Society of Indianapolis and the money raised helps the nonprofit organization fulfill its vision of ensuring that central Indiana animals are treated with dignity and respect while living free from cruelty, harm and neglect. Each year, the organization cares for more than 5,000 animals. Fundraising events like Mutt Strut are vital to Indy Humane, as the organization receives no government funding. Last year’s event drew more than 7,200 people and 6,000 furry friends.
“Mutt Strut will truly be the greatest spectacle in dog walking this year,” says CEO John Aleshire. “Whether you attend with or without a dog, if you walk the whole track or just the one-mile short course, there’s something for animal lovers and sports enthusiasts alike.”
