About This Activity

This glow-in-the-dark 5K run/walk is a brand new event to benefit the animals at Humane Society of West Michigan!

Bark in the Dark is for anyone who owns a pet, wants to walk in memory of a pet that has crossed the rainbow bridge, is thinking about adopting or who is looking for a fun 5K to participate in!

Your $30 registration (along with the donations you raise) will help the Humane Society of West Michigan in its mission to protect and care for all animals. Register yourself and you will be given the opportunity to create a fundraising page where you can send the direct link out to your contacts for donations. E-mail can take the fear out of asking. You'll be surprised how many people respond that you may not have asked in person. Raise $150 and receive our official Bark in the Dark t-shirt - this $150 donation cares for one animal for one week at our shelter!

Invite your family and friends to join you at Bark in the Dark. You can also join with your company and become a team captain. Teams can have an unlimited number of people and together you can raise more money for the animals and share a meaningful experience. Each team member needs to register separately and they will have the option to join the team in the registration process. 

Feel free to bring your pet along for the walk or come on your own. Dogs are welcome to attend but must be well-behaved (able to handle being around other dogs and people), up-to-date on vaccines and leashed.

For more information about this event, please contact Nicole Cook, Marketing and Events Coordinator, at or 616-791-8089.
