Walk-a-thon in North Langley helps lost cats

Pull on your walking shoes and get ready to head out on the trail to benefit stray and abandoned cats in Langley.

This Sept. 14 will see the kickoff of the 11th annual C.A.R.E.S. Walk-a-thon at Derby Reach Regional Park.

The Canadian Animal Rescue and Extended Shelter (C.A.R.E.S.) is a Langley-based shelter that has been helping cats since 1993.

The shelter takes in unwanted or lost felines and has a no-kill policy. It is funded entirely through memberships, donations, adoption fees, and through events like the annual walk-a-thon.

The walk this year is an easy five kilometres down the scennic Fort-to-Fort Trail along the Fraser River, and those who have registered and taken part in the walk are invited to a barbecue after they have finished their trek.

Walkers can ask their friends and co-workers to sponsor them, and should collect the money by Sept. 14. Donations can be made through CanadaHelps.org. Registration is at noon and the walk begins at 1 p.m.

For more information and to register for the walk, call Carol Briner at 604-202-0713, or email donations@carescatshelter.com.
