About This Activity

A 5K walk/run, 10K run, and kids 100 meter sprint to support the mission of RunFurShelter to raise funds to provide food, shelter and medical necessities for our deserving companions. RunFurShelter has partnered with the Salvation Army Golden Diners Program which feeds over 1000 senior citizens in Kane and McHenry counties in Illinois. Through this meal program a need was identified for many seniors who have difficulty feeding their pets. Proceeds from the 2016 run will be used to purchase pet food for pets of individuals in the Salvation Army’s Golden Diners Program.
