Event Coordinator - 3-5 people to work together to plan the walk, festival activities/entertainment, solicit vendor booths, and some local logistics. Key planning responsibilities for the Event Coordinators include: securing donations (items for raffles/budget relief), sourcing food trucks, creating an attendee parking plan, securing local supplies, planning the walk course, sourcing/scheduling stage entertainment, sourcing/planning for tent activities, grassroots marketing, and organizing ideas for social media posts.

Marketing Outreach Lead - 1 person to be responsible for promoting the local Strut Your Mutt event to potential participants through grassroots marketing efforts.
