Westport Labor Day 'Fun Run' promotes diet, exercise for dog lovers, canines alike

About 50 people and their dogs participated in Westport's first annual Westport Labor Day Fun Run.
The event promoted the importance of diet and exercise to people who work, but also for those who have four-legged friends.
The dog-treat company Yup Pup and the running store Fleet Feet, both based in Westport, sponsored the event.
"We know that diet and exercise are two of the most important things we do. So, we think it's a great thing to combine those things with our furry best friends. So, we are sponsoring this event to get people out there and run with their dogs and have a great Labor Day weekend," said Joe Sequenzia.
Organizers say the fastest-growing dog treat company in New England, Yup Pup is proud to salute all working Americans — including the four-legged variety both at home and abroad.
