Jetblue Park Stadium: 11581 Daniels Parkway, Fort Myers, United States
We have been closely following updates on COVID-19 and referencing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Florida Department of Health, the University of Florida Veterinary Program, and more for information.
As many of you are aware the CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.
Due to this recommendation, we will be postponing the upcoming Fast & the Furriest 5K/1 Mile Fun Walk.
Let me be clear that we are not cancelling the event, simply postponing. We ask that you stay positive and stay the course with us! This postponement will give us more time to plan, more time to advertise our sponsors, and more time to make it an even better 10th Annual event!
We deeply regret this inconvenience and are working to choose an alternative date in Fall 2020.
As soon as we solidify the new date, we will be contacting all of you!
If you have any questions, please contact Aimee at email@example.com. Thank you all for your support and dedication!!!
