Five Ways to Participate & Help Animals

Register to Run or Walk

Whatever your speed, we’ve got something for you:

  • 5K run with dogs and 5K run without dogs
  • 2K walk (dogs welcome!)
  • Early-bird, team, and student discounts

Support a Participant or the Event

  • Let them know you’re proud of them: donate to an individual or team.
  • Help us reach our event goal of $20,000!
  • Great way to help even if you can’t attend!

Fundraise for the Animals

Maximize your potential to save lives by setting up your own fundraising page for your friends, relatives, neighbors, and coworkers. We’ll provide all the fundraising materials you need to earn their support!

Spread the Word

Let everyone know that your favorite 5K (that’s ours!) is coming soon! Send an email. Make a phone call. Tweet it out. Hire a skywriter… well, that’s probably a bit much, but inviting your friends to the event page is pretty easy! Let them know you’ll be there!

Use the ResQwalk App in Training

For the first time ever, we’ve got a training guide that will get you from the couch to the course in 8 weeks! We’ve also got ResQwalk, a free app that uses your phone’s GPS to track your mileage and donates money to us on your behalf for every mile you move. Download it today, select Second Chance as your charity, and get moving! It’s that easy.
