Fillies Race for Hope and 5K Walk & Trot

At 10:30 a.m. on August 17, the starting gun will ring across the equestrian grounds at Canterbury Park—only this time, it won’t prompt a stampede of thoroughbred hooves. Instead, humans will walk or jog through the starting gate on their hind-legs for the 5K Walk & Trot, the opening event of the park’s Fillies Race for Hope celebration. After the 5K run, participants can unwind with a packed afternoon of festivities that includes more than four hours of horse races, a derby hat contest, a raffle, and a silent auction.<p>

The Fillies Race for Hope and 5K Walk & Trot was founded by Gary P. Speich in honor of his friend Lette Gamble, a breast cancer survivor. Proceeds from the event benefit The Hope Chest for Breast Cancer and the Pay It Forward Fund, two local non-profits that help breast cancer patients in need of financial assistance.<p>
