Paws for a Cause 5K & 1 Mile Strut your Mutt – Run/Walk

Please join the Humane Society of Elkhart County for a timed trail run/walk in a pleasant natural environment. Runners, walkers and their dogs will be gathering to enjoy time together, activities, great music and sharing with others.

Proceeds from this event will be directed towards the daily operations of HSEC. Last year, over 5,500 animals entered through our doors. Over 50 different species of animals were encountered as the Humane Society fulfills its role of animal control.

This year we are offering a virtual run/walk option. We hope that we can all gather on May 22, but if COVID-19 restrictions are still in place, the in person race may have a restriction on attendance and become a virtual event. If you register for the in person race and we are unable to hold it, all entries will automatically become virtual, no refunds will be available. All can share their photos and we can be together at a distance. Shirts and race packet information will be available for pick up at HSEC after May 21 for those participating virtually.
