About This Activity

Come join us on Veteran's Day where we celebrate our Nation's Veterans with a fun type of race - all benefitting the Baxter Springs Animal Hospital.   All funds will be donated to a newly established "Emergency Petcare Fund" designed to help local families pay for pet treatment that they may not have otherwise been able to have done - many times saving the lives of the pet.  

Pet Parade and Fun Run (1K) - Bring your favorite four legged (if you have a kangaroo, they're welcome too!)  friend and let's have a parade.  Walk, jog or run with your friend to support Animal Health and receive a free CJ FOODS bandana for your pet.   

5K Mutt Strut and 9K for Canines - each race is chip timed with water stops.  More details later, but these races are also pet friendly if you choose to bring your pet with you for the walk or run.

This is a special awareness event and we will have special guests on hand, including KSN's Jessica Schaer and her four legged friend, Lisbeth.  Also, the Joplin Humane Society will be hosting a Pet Adoption Event on location, and Baxter Springs Pet Hospital will be there to provide information for your pets.

The Pet Parade and Fun Run will begin at 8:30am, and the 5K and 9K will start at 9:00am from the parking lot of CJ Foods, who is the main sponsor for the event.  Drinks and snacks will be provided.  There will be finisher medals for all 5K and 9K participants as well as a T-shirt.  T-shirts are also available to purchase separately for Pet Parade and Fun Runners.  Packet pickup information will come soon.
