It was HOT. It was HILLY. It was so much FUN!

The first annual DIRTY PAWS & CLAWS 2X5K RELAY CHALLENGE benefitting the DCSPCA was a Fun-Run-draiser like no other...   

35 Teams of 2 battled it out on the hilly roads & trails of Wilcox Memorial Park to see who would be crowned the

fastest 5k running duo iDutchess County, all while using their feet to help paws.

 

The Relay was made up of 2, 5K Legs. Leg 1 was on the road and Leg 2 was on the trail. The first team to complete the 2X5K course

and cross the finish line with their team baton (aka: glove dog/cat stuffie) was the winner!

Kent Rinehart helped make the day even more exciting running as our UNDER DOG!

Kent started dead last and 1 minute after the First Leg. For every runner Kent passed over the course of both Legs a $10 donation was made to the DCSPCA via an anonymous donor! Kent's feet on fire passed 63 runners, raising $630!!!!! AMAZING JOB

 

Bags & bags & bags of pup/cat food, treats,    and toys packed the truck and  67 sneakers

were collected for Funds2Orgs benefiting

the DCSPCA

NONE of this would've been possible without the support of our AMAZING sponsors.

THANK YOU!
