Last Sunday, May 6, runners and walkers–both 4-legged and 2-legged–gathered at Dorothea Dix Park for Second Chance’s annual Racing for Rescues 5K runs/fun walk. While our fastest runners, biggest fundraisers, and raffle winners all took home prizes, the real winners that day were the stray and abandoned cats and dogs awaiting their second chance to find love.
Every Second Chance supporter who registered to run, sign up to walk, purchased raffle tickets, and donated to the event collectively win the best prize of all: making it possible for us to save lives. Thanks to you, we raised more than $10,000 over our goal and several thousand dollars more than last year!
Those who participated have been emailed a post-event survey so we can make Racing for Rescues 2019 bigger and better than ever! We hope all of you will join us next year, and in the meantime, we invite you to check out our event photos, including RaceWire’s finish line photos of runners!
