It's your chance to exercise and support local vets -- at a special run in Lincoln Park.

The second annual Vets and Pets 5K kicks off at 6:30 tomorrow evening.

About 100 people are expected to walk and trot with their favorite four-legged friends.

Half the money raised is expected to go towards the Veterans Memorial Park in Grand Forks.

Organizers say it's not just dogs they're expecting to see tomorrow.

"We were one of the first events in town that I know of to invite you to bring your dogs with you as you're doing a 5k. It's not only dogs. We had any pets. Last year we had a goat run the 5k so that was a lot of fun," says Jeff Carl, organizer.

It's not too late to register. You can join in on the fun by paying $25 right before the run.
