About This Activity

Bring your dog and join us at the Woofer Walk & 5k for an untimed 1-mile walk or an officially-timed 5k run on MSU's beautiful campus to raise funds for the homeless animals at the Ingham County Animal Shelter! Funds will support the Shelter Fund and the Animal Care Fund, which provides a full-time Animal Cruelty Officer for the entirety of Ingham County (who works directly with law enforcement and the Prosecutor’s Office to find and bring those guilty of animal neglect and abuse to justice) and helps defray the costs of housing, medication, veterinary care, and rehabilitation for animals seized in criminal cases or who have otherwise been neglected, injured or abused.

In addition to the 5k and Walk, we are adding a FREE Kids Fun Run to start off the Race, and we will have a number of other free fun activities and vendor booths to visit and enjoy before race kickoff, such as facepainting, dog agility-course demos, DJ music, and photo opportunities with ICAC mascot Chippy! We are also a part of the Michigan Fitness Challenge race series (http://michiganfitness.org/), so if you sign up to participate in the Challenge, you can count our 5k event in your completed races!

The deadline for FREE T-SHIRTS with registration has been extended to Friday, May 5! Any registrants past this date will have the option of purchasing t-shirts at the event itself ($15 adult sizes, $10 children's sizes).
