Register Today & Help Save a Homeless Pet

At this year's 15th annual fundraiser, we hope to raise enough funds to save 1,500 additional homeless pets. To make this goal a reality, we need your help!

Make Your Miles Matter This Year

Fundraising $125 provides a life-saving medical analysis to a homeless pet. Once rescued and in our care, these pets receive the medical care they need to become healthy enough to be adopted into loving forever homes. 

A Medical Analysis Can Help Save a Life

Medical analyses diagnose injuries and illnesses of homeless pets before they can be adopted. When every participant raises just $125, together we can save 1,500 additional lives. All participants receive a free online fundraising webpage and the tools to be a fundraising success-not to mention terrific prizes for your hard work. 

Fundraise $125 to Become a Lifesaver

Fundraise, donate or register at the $125 level and receive a special "LIFESAVER" participant t-shirt, a goody bag filled with gifts to use in the VIP LIFESAVER Lounge fundraiser tent on race day. This year's Lifsaver Lounge includes pre-race treats, a professional photostation, play pen of adoptable puppies, adult finisher beverages, delicious food, snacks, doggy buffet, tables, private bathrooms and more!
