Race Overview

2017 Early Bird Sponsorship Now Available! Select Sponsorship Below Gallery

Thank you to everyone that joined us for our second annual RescueMe 5K! We had a blast and we are already looking forward to next year’s event. This year we had 478 runners/walkers and 207 canines cross the finish line! In 2015 we had 450 humans and 167 canines cross the finish line.

All the proceeds from this annual event help to benefit Operation Sidekick – The American Pit Bull Foundation’s program dedicated to training and providing rescued Pit Bull to veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. APBF is providing a bridge from the thousands of homeless Pit Bulls euthanized annually in the United States to the thousands of veterans in need of a service companion.
