Details from event's RunSignUp.com listing:
Please join us for the 28th annual Run for the Animals & Barktoberfest on Sunday, October 1st!
Run for the Animals is a timed 5K run/walk and event at Karst Farm Park, with all of the proceeds benefiting the programs and services of the Monroe County Humane Association. Barktoberfest is 100% free for members of our community to attend, and includes local vendors, an off-leash dog play area and tons of other fun games and activities for both families and furry friends! This event is so important to the Monroe County Humane Association and our ability to provide so many programs and services that would otherwise not exist in our community.
MCHA advocates for a more humane future for the pets in our community by being a provider of accessible veterinary care through our Nonprofit Veterinary Clinic, offering a free Pet Food & Supply Pantry, humane education, and Therapy Animal Program - many lives, human and animal alike, are touched by the work of MCHA. All this and much more is only possible because of the generous support of our community! MCHA is a private 501c3 non-profit that receives no funding from national organizations or tax dollars.
We anticipate welcoming hundreds of runners, walkers, and furry friends to this event! Don’t miss this great opportunity to support animal welfare in our community!
Preregistered runner packets will be available for pick up at event entrance.
