NRVT’s Mutt Strut & Friends Virtual Fundraiser

May 5 - June 5

The Norwalk River Valley Trail (NRVT) introduces “Mutt Strut & Friends Virtual”, a fun replacement for the Annual Mutt Strut Fundraiser which was canceled due to COVID-19. Mutt Strut & Friends Virtual gives everyone the chance to showcase their dogs, win prizes, and raise funds to build more of the NRVT. Mutt Strut & Friends Virtual begins May 16 and runs to June 5.

Post your favorite picture of your dog (or other friends.. cat, ferret, bunny, etc.) or share a short video of clip of those crazy dog tricks. The Top Dog/Cutest Pet/Best Video entries will win prizes for pets and their humans, including Cannondale Bikes, Joy Food fresh dog food, grooming, and other prizes in addition to the prestigious Mutt Strut & Friends Virtual trophies.

Please visit the website for entry directions and check the Mutt Strut & Friends Virtual Leaderboard daily to see the leading “mutts”.

During the Coronavirus crisis, the NRVT had trail use spike by over 150%. The NRVT has eight miles of completed trail and 22 more miles to build. All proceeds from this event help build more community-friendly multipurpose trail.

Friends of the NRVT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, dedicated to the creation of a 30-mile, multi-use, handicap accessible, soft surface trail running through the heart of Fairfield County–from Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, through Wilton, Ridgefield, and Redding, terminating at Rogers Park in Danbury.
