The first will be the “Race for the Rescues- Los Angeles” on October 6th at the Pasadena Rose Bowl. Participants can choose from various races including: Running/Walking a 5K, 10K, 1K dog walk or Kid’s Fun Run.
The second race will be the November 10th “Race for the Rescues-Orange County” at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, California. Participants can choose from the same events and distances as mentioned in the “Race for the Rescues-Los Angeles.”
For those who are not keen on physical competitions or simply cannot make it, there is even a “couch potato race” option, basically registering to “be there in spirit,” so to speak.
The events are being coordinated by The Rescue Train, a no-kill California rescue organization working to end the euthanasia of pets and animal suffering via hands-on rescue work, education and awareness. The two races will benefit many other rescue organizations in Los Angeles and Orange County (to view a list of these organizations, click here), all working together to save many pets’ lives and find them forever homes.
So, come out and join other like-minded animal lovers to save a few lives while also doing something fun and healthy.
