Taking place at The Great Park in Irvine, this Sunday, November 10th, is a race and adoption fair to benefit local animal welfare organizations. Registration begins at 7:00 a.m., while the first race starts at 8:30 a.m. This event is open to the public, and while you do have to pay to run, Entry is free to the expo area and adoption fair.
Not a big fan of running? That’s ok because participants can race in a 5k run, 10k run, 1k dog walk, or 1k kid/couch potato run. There is something for everyone which makes this a great family activity. It’s also a positive and fun way to introduce your child to philanthropy while getting him/her outdoors exercising!
The event will be hosted by celebrity pet expert Harrison Forbes. Other celebrities joining the cause include USA Track & Field runner Brenda Martinez, singer Katrina Parker, dog trainer Laura Nativo, the Anaheim Ducks Ice Crew, along with the Anaheim Ducks mascot, Wild Wing.
Race for the Rescue has raised 54% of their goal so far, but they need your help to reach 100%. Go to the Race for the Rescues Donor Drive page to register, donate, and get more information like race fees, schedules, course maps, parking info, volunteering info, and more.
