Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary is hosting its 10th annual "Run for the Animals!" The 5K run and 1 mile fun walk is a fundraiser dedicated to supporting the lifesaving work Poplar Spring does every day. From the warm up, running and walking on the scenic trails, the dog and people raffles, the prizes, and the abundance of food, a good time will be had by all. Join approximately 600 runners, teams, and individuals competing for prize money and raffle items at Wheaton Regional Park in Silver Spring, Maryland. Although dogs cannot participate in the run, they are more than welcome to come out and join the 1 mile walk. An assortment of delicious vegan refreshments will be provided.
All proceeds benefit the sanctuary.
