XENIA, Ohio — It’s time to celebrate 15 years of 4 Paws… and that means 700 placements to children with disabilities worldwide.
So in honor of 15 years, we’re excited to announce our 1st Annual 5K run/walk right here in Xenia, Ohio!
The 5K run/walk will take place along the scenic bike trail in Xenia, starting at the historic Xenia Station, on Saturday, June 29. It will also feature a 1-mile dog walk for those coming out with their service and non-service dogs, but who may not want to run 3.1 miles. Race-day registration and check-in will begin at 8 a.m. and the 5K starts at 9 a.m. The 1-mile walk will begin at 9:15 a.m.
Your 5K run/walk registration, $30, includes a limited-supply T-shirt, however, the 1-mile dog walk, $15, does not include a T-shirt. If there are T-shirts left at the time of the race, they can be purchased for $15. Please note, children under the age of 12, as well as all documented 4 Paws kids are free. Those children do not need to register and T-shirt not included.
The race will support non-profit, 4 Paws for Ability’s mission as well as raise money for our building fund—so that we can place even more service dogs with those who need them.
