About This Activity

Bring out your best four-legged friend and join us for an event that really has gone to the dogs!!

Our first annual Boxer Luv 5K Run and Fun Run/Walk will take place on Saturday, January 30 2016 at Kiwanis Park in Tempe!

Founded in 1998, Boxer Luv Rescue is a 501(c) (3)nonprofit organization run entirely on private donations. We are managed and run by volunteers - more than 400 strong - dedicated individuals working together whose Mission is to give new life to homeless Boxers in need. We welcome Boxers into Boxer Luv from shelters and humane societies; we take in strays, some hit by cars or injured; others wandering the streets, lost or abandoned. We take in dogs from people who can no longer care for their dogs, are in financial or personal crisis, or simply no longer want their pet.

During the past 17 years, with a list of over 7000 Boxers and Boxer mixes rescued, Boxer Luv has achieved a stellar reputation in the Phoenix area and across Arizona for its responsiveness to Boxers in need. We are on the call lists of the majority of veterinarians, police officers and firemen who contact us when they find a Boxer in need in our community.

 Can't make it to this year's event but still want to participate? We are excited to announce our Boxer Luv Virtual Race. A virtual race is a race that can be ran at any location. You can walk, use the treadmill, run outside or participate in another race. You can run your race at your pace wherever you like. All virtual race participants will receive a custom event finisher's medal and custom event dri-fit tech t-shirt.  All you have to do is register above!
