Join K9s United on Saturday, April 22nd in the Nocatee Community for a 5k run and a 1 mile fun run. This race is in its second year and is supports K9 Units throughout Florida, South Georgia and beyond. The 5k will be chip timed 5km with awards for the top runners in each category. There is also a untimed 1 mile fun run, both open to runners and walkers of all levels.
Can’t make it out on race day, that’s okay…this year we are offing a “Virtual Race” so you can still be part of the fun, earn a T-shirt and medal, and support a great cause.
In addition to the race there will be amazing post-race activities for the whole family including a K-9 demonstration.
This year we will also have a fundraising contest with a random drawing AND the top fundraiser earning 2 round-trip Jet Blue airline tickets!
100% of the proceeds will benefit K-9s United, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the K-9 units throughout Florida, South Georgia and beyond. The organization was formed in 2015 following the death of K-9 Officer Baron, a member of the St. Johns County, Florida Sheriff’s Office for just a year and a half. Baron was killed by a wanted felon he was pursuing. His story is one of courage and dedication as well as tragic loss.
