About This Activity

Join us for this glow-in-the-dark 5K run/walk to benefit the animals at Humane Society of West Michigan!

We are thrilled to announce Humane Society of West Michigan’s third annual
Bark in the Dark on Saturday, October 10, 2015!  Animal lovers of all ages will join us at 7 p.m. at Riverside Park for this glow-in-the-dark 5K walk/run. Guests are encouraged to bring their dogs as this will be a great opportunity for people and their canine companions to get active and support a great cause.

Register yourself and you will be given the opportunity to create a fundraising page where you can send the direct link out to your contacts for donations. All funds raised support Humane Society of West Michigan (HSWM) in its mission to promote the humane treatment and responsible care of animals in West Michigan through education, example, placement and protection.  When you consider supporting, please know that HSWM does not receive any funding from the government or national animal welfare organizations.  HSWM exists solely on donations from donors and community partners like you. We appreciate your generous support and hope we can work together in the goal to ensure that every pet receives the love and care it deserves. Any amount is greatly appreciated! Start collecting donations today and earn donation incentives!

-Company Team: $500 for 20 participants (Fundraising Goal: $1000)
