Your pet could be the official Chilimania 2016 mascot!
Register now to compete in the Chili Chase 5K run and walk, bring along your four-legged friend(s) dressed in their finest costumes and he/she could go home with the title of Official Chilimania 2016 Mascot!
Judging will take place at 8 a.m. near the starting line for the Chili Chase 5K (outside of Sara’s Health & Fitness on North Henry Street in downtown Edgerton). All registered Chili Chase participants are eligible to enter a pet into the Official Mascot contest.
There is no official judging criteria, per se; our judges are instructed to pick the best-dressed, cutest and friendliest of the lot.
The winning pet receives a basket full of goodies and the right to brag to all his/her friends down at the park until Chilimania 2017!
Meet Snickers, 2015 Chilimania mascot!
I wanted to take some time today to thank you for voting for me to be the new mascot. I cannot tell you how excited I am.
My parents always tell me how much fun they have at Chilimania and now I know why! And what really makes it so special is that the funds go to help local students further their education, which is a cause I care very much about!
When I ran to the finish line with my mom and heard you announce my name and everyone clapped and cheered – oh man! That was just about the most awesome thing ever!
I can’t wait to share a bit of my life with you all throughout this year while representing Chilimania with my big smile.
So, Chilimania, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Smiles for miles,
Australian kelpie mix rescue, age 11.5
