Helping Paws Animal Shelter invites runners, walkers and their four-legged furry friends to participate in the 12th annual Panting for Paws 5K and 1 Mile Family Run/Walk at Lippold Park in Crystal Lake, IL. The shelter’s goal is to raise at least $30,000 this year. Registration and full details available online at runsignup.com/panting18. You can also pick up a registration form at Helping Paws in Woodstock. Advance registration is $35 for 5K and $20 for 1 Mile. All ages and fitness levels are encouraged and welcome as you can run or walk in both events. **The first 150 registered for the 5K will receive a Helping Paws beanie hat, perfect for our Midwest winters.** All pre-registered participants receive a long sleeve race T-shirt, goody bag and are invited to enjoy the “after pawty” with hot dog lunch, beer and other refreshments being served after the race. There will also be vendors, a raffle and meet some of our adoptable dogs. Awards will be presented to the overall male and female winners, along with age category awards for the top three male and female in each. All proceeds will go to the Helping Paws Animal Shelter where the money is used for medical care of shelter animals.
