The Rescue Train’s largest annual fundraising event, Race for the Rescues has raised over $2.5 Million to help save the lives of thousands of homeless animals in Los Angeles and Orange County, California. This day of fun includes a 5k, 10k, 1k Dog Walk and Kids Fun Run. There is also a “Couch Potato” Race for those that would like to donate from the comfort of their home. Participants can join as individuals or start a team. Dogs and cats will be available for adoption from local shelters.
Saturday, October 24, 2015 | Rose Bowl, Pasadena | Registration opens at 7:00 a.m. | The race begins at 8:30 a.m.
(You’ll also wanna check out “Ernie’s Angels.” Ernie was a big ol’ tabby who sadly passed away before the 2014 race. His hoomin has been matching every dollar raised by the race junior volunteer team. The goal is $2K which would then become $4K! See here.)
And here are some photos from last year’s event:
