MAKE EVERY STEP YOU TAKE COUNT BY FUNDRAISING FOR HOMELESS PETS AT THE ANIMAL FOUNDATION

Whether you are participating on your own or as part of a team, now you can make your race participation mean even more by setting up your own fundraising page. Share your page with everyone you know and let them know that as they support you, they are also helping save the lives of homeless animals in need in the Las Vegas Valley.

CAN’T MAKE IT? RUN A VIRTUAL RACE WITH US!

Even if you can’t make it to Sunset Park on November 18th you can still support The Animal Foundation in a virtual race from any location you choose. You can run, jog or walk in your own neighborhood, at the gym on a treadmill or on a trail. You get to run your own race, at your own pace. You can even create a virtual team. And, you can still invite friends and family to support you via your own fundraising page.

Note: Virtual participants still need to register to receive your t-shirt, participation medal and numbered bib. Let others support you and The Animal Foundation by setting up your own fundraising page.

NEW THIS YEAR – TEAM PARTICIPATION

Consider joining or starting a team. All it takes is one or two committed people to make a team. Invite business colleagues, family or friends to help you fundraise for The Animal Foundation. Show your team spirit with custom team shirts made by Pens Prints (pensprints.com)! Pens Prints will donate 20% of the proceeds from each shirt sold directly back to The Animal Foundation. Show your team spirit and get involved!
