Join 'Team VSDC' for the Run for the Animals!

Join Team VSDC in the Run for the Animals!

The 11th Annual "Run for the Animals" hosted by Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary is on Sunday, May 18th.  Sign up now for this 5K run or 1 mile fun walk, and be a part of "Team VSDC" (Vegetarian Society of DC) to help us win the coveted Pigasus trophy.  Runners of all levels are encouraged -- only the top two or three times for men and women count, so no need to worry about holding the team back; the more the merrier!

Join hundreds of runners, or participate in the 1-mile fun walk. This year's course has been modified so that the first two miles are FLAT with a beautiful run through Brookside Gardens!  Delicious vegan refreshments will be provided. Although dogs cannot participate in the run, they are more than welcome to come out and join the walk.

WHEN: May 18 at 8:00 am (registration opens at 7:00 a.m., please arrive by 8:00 a.m. for the 8:30 am race start)
WHERE: Wheaton Regional Park, 2000 Shorefield Road, Wheaton, MD 20902
PRICE: Early registration is $25.00 by Apr 21; $28.00 April 22-May 17; $30 on race day.  Registration fees benefit Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary
