ARF 5K Run/Walk With The Dogs!May 21, 202310AM Start - Rain or ShineMemorial ParkRobert Cahill DriveBeacon, NY 12508 This 5k Run/Walk is Beacon's only nonprofit sporting event dedicated to saving animals' lives. On this day, animal lovers and athletes of all ages lace up and hit the pavement in support of ARF where 100% of the profits goes to the Animal Rescue Foundation. All in-person participating dogs must be well-behaved and non-aggressive with people and other dogs. All dogs must be leashed and current on all vaccines. Strollers are welcomed as well, and while traffic is pretty light this time of day, the roads are open to traffic. Those with strollers should use extreme caution especially when approaching other runners and allow ample space, particularly on hills. We recommend strollers start toward the back just so that the large pack has a chance to spread out a bit to minimize any chance of injury. T-shirts to the first 100 pre-registered participants! Volunteer opportunities are available for the event. High School, College students, Local Scouts/ community orgs. are welcomed. Fill out the volunteer form HERE or for information, email If you are bringing a dog to the 5K, please note all dogs must be well-behaved, non-aggressive toward people, other dogs and current on vaccines.* In addition to recognizing the First Dog/ Human to cross the finish line, there will be a contest for "Dog in Best Costume" BENEFICIARY The Animal Rescue Foundation is a no-kill, all volunteers, animal rescue and shelter located in Beacon New York. Since our founding in 1986, we rescue, rehabilitate, shelter and find forever homes for thousands of cats and dogs. Many of our dogs are rescued from kill shelters and relocated to ARF via Pilots and Paws or a ground transport network. All of ARF’s animals are vet checked, vaccinated, and spayed or neutered before adoption and we house and care for those that need more time to find just the right forever home. For some, elderly animals and those with disabilities or medical conditions, where adoption is unlikely, we provide permanent care so they can live out their lives safely and comfortably. As a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we depend on fundraising events like this and donations to continue our work.   AMENITIEST-shirts to the first 100 pre-registered participants!Raffles & Sponsors GiveawaysEntertainment by DJ VybeFace paintingLIVE / Text / Email ResultsFREE Finish Line PhotosPersonalized Bibs if registered 3 weeks in advance
