Inspired by his love for his dog Jasmine, 8th grader Bryce Velasco decided to take a different approach to his class leadership project.
Bryce adopted Jasmine from the Chico Animal Shelter, so he wanted to do something for them. The two are now the faces of "Walk Woof Wag," the first fundraiser of its kind.
Proceeds from the event go towards medical costs for the animals in the shelter.
In addition to a 5k run, Walk Woof Wag will also host a 1 mile walk around lower Bidwell and fun games and refreshments for those who just want to join in on the fun.
To register for the event or send donations go to the Walk Woof Wag website.
