-----------> VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: Facebook post and email received 05-04-2017 at 2:04pm says: We are extremely disappointed to have to announce that Walk the Cause for Needy Paws is being postponed. Creve Coeur Park is underwater and will not go down in time for the event this weekend. We are doing our best to work with the parks department to see if there are any dates and locations available for us to have the race in a timely manner. We will keep everyone up to date as we find more information out. If rescheduling is not an option, we will still be sure to have options for you to pick up your shirt and cinch sack filled with goodies.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by this tragic flooding. With the event being postponed, we encourage you to use your free Saturday morning to volunteer in some of the hard hit areas.
We truly appreciate everyone's support with this matter. Please tag your friends and share this information with anyone you know who were set to attend.
