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
  • a casual 1.5-mile fun walk (dogs welcome!)
  • in-person May 1 or remotely April 29 – May 1

Support a Participant or the Event

It takes a village! Our volunteers are setting up fundraising pages of their own.

  • Let them know you’re proud of them: donate to your loved one’s page.
  • Help us reach our event goal of $50,000!
  • Great way to help even if you can’t attend!

Fundraise for the Animals

Save lives and win a prize: set 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!

Buy Raffle Tickets and Win Big!

We’re raffling off $750 in gift cards: one winner will score a $500 American Express gift card and a $250 Amazon gift card to spend like cash! You need not be present, or even registered for Racing for Rescues, to win! Get your tickets ASAP–you don’t want to miss out!
