About This Activity

Speranza Animal Rescue is excited to be hosting our Second Annual 5K and 1 Mile Fun Walk. We learned a lot last year and plan to make this race even better!  We have great prizes and a beautiful course.  We will have a few of our adoptable dogs running with some of the participants again, so that you can meet some of the dogs that you are supporting by participating in this race.

Whether you are an avid runner or just an animal lover, this is the race for you! All money raised will help support Speranza Animal Rescue and all of the wonderful animals that we save.  We are building a new addition this summer and this race will help fund the building efforts.
