RBARI's Go The Distance Virtual 5K Walk/Run Event

GO THE DISTANCE Virtual 5K Walk / Run… where every dollar raised will be matched up to 5K!

Many of our vital 2020 fundraisers have been forced to cancel at a time of extraordinary need. Join with us for a virtual walk / run to ensure that we are able to keep our doors open and continue to be here for the animals who need us most. Join us to GO THE DISTANCE and save more lives!

Who: Walk or run solo, with family or with your furry companion to complete 1, 2, 3.1 (5K!) or more miles! Go whatever distance is comfortable for you, and save lives with each step!

5. Share the photos with us! Each photo submitted will be matched with a $10 donation from our matching donor. Tag @rbarishelter and use the hashtag #rbark5k.

Where: Anywhere YOU choose to GO THE DISTANCE!

Why: 100% of the proceeds raised go directly to the care of homeless dogs and cats. Right now is a time of extraordinary need for animals. The effects of the global coronavirus pandemic are devastating. No life has been untouched. Homeless dogs and cats are among the most vulnerable. Without help, the future many animals are facing is uncertain and dismal. But, as we walk together, we can make a difference.
