ANN ARBOR,Mich. – On May 18, bring your furry friend to the Walk & Wag and Run 2019, a fundraising fun time benefiting the Humane Society of Huron Valley.

Starting at 8 a.m., the Walk & Wag and Run 2019 is more than a 5K race. The five-hour event includes a range of dog-friendly activities including a 1-mile fun walk, dock diving and a trick competition, as well as a prize raffle.

Taking place at the Rolling Hills County Park this year, the annual Walk & Wag helps the HSHV met its fundraising goals to provide a safe space for animals as they wait for their furrever homes.

Just over halfway to its goal of $250,000, HSHV asks that registered participants raise at least $50 each, which will go toward taking care of the animals at the HSHV and the low-cost services it provides Washtenaw County.

A 1-mile Kids’ Dash fun run will also take place at 9:15 a.m. for children between the ages of 4 and 10.

Walk & Wag attendees will also be able to purchase raffle tickets for $5 so as to be in the running for three great prizes: $1,000 cash, four suite tickets to a 2019 Detroit Tigers regular season home game and an Amazon Fire 10 tablet.  

See the full itinerary below:

Vegetarian-friendly food trucks will be on-site for human participants.

Rolling Hills County Park is at 7660 Stony Creek Road in Ypsilanti.
