Dust off your sneakers and grab a furry friend - it's time for the Toledo Humane Society's 36th Annual Bark in the Park walk and run for the animals presented by ProMedica and the Walter E. Terhune Memorial Fund Keybank, Trustee!
Our annual 5K/10K and 1-mile family family fun walk for the animals is kicking off - and we can't wait to see our community and their furry friends in person! Join us on Saturday, June 5th from 9:00am-12:00pm at The Shops at Fallen Timbers for our walk and run, along with a morning of food, games, treats for pups and kids alike (and adults as well on our brand-new 21+ Paw Patio generously sponsored by Karnik on Black!), and more!
The event begins at 9:00am for Bark in the Park registration, prize pick-up, food trucks, and our Vendor Village! Our 5K/10K kicks off at 10:00am, with the 1-Mile Family Fun Walk beginning at 10:15am. The festivities will be happening from 9:00am-12:00pm, and our Paw Patio will be serving drinks until 2:00pm!
We will be hosting our Bark in the Park festivities in person, but you can partake in all the running fun with our virtual 5K and 10K on your own time if you are more comfortable participating in this way! If you sign up for our virtual run, you will receive information about how to record your virtual times as the event grows closer.
**Please note that once you register, an email will be sent out with instructions on how to set-up your fundraising page. Make sure to check your spam folder. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can assist you!**
Why Join The Fun?
This year marks the 36th year of our annual Bark in the Park walk and run for the animals, and we would not be able to hold such an event without the support of our community. In 2020, we raised $75,000 for the animals in the midst of a pandemic - and we're looking to blow that number out of the water this year!
Every dollar raised by YOU goes directly back to the Toledo Humane Society and the thousands of animals we serve every year. Bark in the Park raises life-saving funds that provide critical medical care, food, shelter, and adoption services for thousands of animals right in your own backyard.
By participating in Bark in the Park, you are becoming a part of something bigger than yourself, all while staying active, winning awesome prizes, and raising funds for our furry friends!
