5K Run/Walk for the Animals

21st Annual 5K Run/Walk for the Animals | Wildwood Park | May 5 

The 21st Annual 5K Run/Walk for the Animals was hosted this Saturday, May 5 at Wildwood Park in Harrisburg. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day to be outside. But, even better to be raising money and celebrating in honor of all the homeless animals of Central PA. Thank you to the many sponsors, vendors, staff, volunteers, and supporters that joined us in the festivities. The funds raised go directly to the care of the over 500 pets currently residing at the shelter waiting for their FURever homes. This year's event had something great for everyone to enjoy. Congratulations to all our competitors. Below is a link to see the official timed results of our participants.

Special Congratulations to our first place canine competitor that has now been victorious two years in a row, Tucker. Tucker is an HSHA alumn and ran in stride with his owners Steve & Christine Brindle and sister, Emerson. 



Below are photos from the 2017 5K Run/Walk for the animals! 2018 Event photos will be posted soon so stay tuned!
