Run / Walk A 5K For A Cause

It’s such a great feeling to combine doing something good for yourself and others - help out a charity in need through exercise.

There’s a lot of opportunities to run or walk for charity. To find a fur-friendly 5K, for animals, check out your local Humane Society or other nonprofit focused on animal conservation. The money raised goes towards helping homeless animals receive the care they need: including food, shelter, vet bills and more. You could also participate in a race for medical issues, such as Susan G. Komen’s Race For The Cure and the JDRF Walk To Cure Diabetes. To learn more about 5K races you can do for charity, check out this list compiled by LiveStrong.
