There are plenty of great causes that benefit from fundraising races. I am reluctant to proclaim favorites because they’re all important. Run for the Paws touches my heart, reminding me of the joy and love that we have enjoyed with the many paws (doggie paws and kittie paws) that we’ve rescued over the years.
Toast (Toastie), Gretchen, Hans, Osa, OddFellow (Scout), Sasha, Chloe and Gidget. This one’s for all of you.
FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
Run for the Paws is the only 5K in Western North Carolina where dogs aren’t just allowed, they’re invited! Join hundreds of animal lovers and their four-legged friends as we run and walk to raise money for pets in need.
We’re excited to be at New Belgium Brewing Company’s campus in Asheville for the 7th Annual Run for the Paws event! Participants can choose to compete in the chip-timed 5K or stroll in the one mile walk. Afterwards, relax with us and enjoy the afternoon on the New Belgium lawn with food vendors, music and fun activities.
The 5k race starts at 10 AM.
