BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) At the Athletic Club of Bend, Sunday brought the fourth annual Heroes on the Run event, to benefit the Bend nonprofit Street Dog Hero.
It included a 5K fundraiser and a kid's mini-run. About 200 people tied up their shoelaces for the run -- and of course, many people brought their four-legged friends along.
The event expanded this year, as on Saturday, there was also a run in Portland.
The Bend event featured food trucks, raffle prizes, entertainment and local vendors. The fundraising goal is to raise $100,000.
The nonprofit's focus is to create positive changes in the lives of animals and their humans through rescues, adoptions and other programs.
