Downtown Mudpuppy Chase

mudpuppyThe 2012 Downtown Mudpuppy Chase invites you to participate in a day of fun, friendship and spirited competition and celebrate the excitement of living in a community that is on the move!

The Mudpuppy was a resident of the area long before most of us when Kitchener was known as Sand Hills. Running from puddle to stream, the Mudpuppy is a sprightly little constant in its ever-changing environment.

This year’s Mudpuppy Chase takes place on Sunday, May 6th. Challenge your friends, family and co-workers to a race, and help support the KidsAbility Centre and Rotary Children’s Charities!
