Coast to Coast Bully Walk
A national effort to raise awareness of Pit bulls — the breed, the challenges, and current issues — is underway, and as part of it Portland Pit Bull Project co-founder Cheryl Huerta and Boston, MA resident Jennifer Thompson have formed a group on Facebook called the Coast to Coast Bully Walk to enlist participants in a Pit Bull walk this fall. Other walks are forming across the country, all set for Oct. 27, which is National Pit Bull Awareness Day. While most are still in the planning stages, early reports indicate that many are in the works, including by groups in California, Alabama, Maryland, North Carolina and Massachusetts.
