Helping Paws Virtual 5K for Service Dogs: Run, Walk or Roll
May 17 @ 12:00 am - May 23 @ 11:30 pm
The Helping Paws Virtual 5K for Service Dogs: Run, Walk, or Roll is a virtual fundraiser to get everyone up and moving for a great cause! Participants are encouraged to walk, run, or roll a 5K (3.1 miles) any day from Monday, May 17 to Sunday, May 23. Choose the route that works best for you. Your favorite park, around your neighborhood, even a treadmill! No matter where you live, you can participate!
Dates: Monday, May 17 – Sunday, May 23. You can avoid bad weather and pick the best day of the week in your area to walk.
Location: Wherever it works best for you, it’s virtual. Anyone can participate anywhere in the world!
With or Without a Dog: Participate with or without a dog! You can also participate with friends or family, if you feel comfortable, or on your own.
Prizes: Yes, we have daily prizes for participating, but not for fastest times. We are not keeping track of times. We will be drawing two (2) daily winners. Details on how this works on our website.
Spread the Word! Post a picture of you, or your dog, or you and your dog before, during or after your walk. Use the hashtag #HPVirtual5K to post to Facebook or Instagram. They will gather all the pictures using this hashtag after that week and post them on their social sites in a video. Show your support service dog training!
