Pictures from Race Day

Come join us for the 2nd Annual Fearless Kitty Rescue 5K Run/Walk on March 26th! The 5k takes place at the state of the art Scottsdale Sports Complex in the heart of beautiful Scottsdale. Our race is to benefit Fearless Kitty Rescue out of Fountain Hills.


You will be welcomed by cat lovers of all ages and, of course, cat-themed running costumes are encouraged. Awards will also be given for best costume, so make sure to get creative! This 5K is an easy, flat course, which takes place in 2 laps that wrap around soccer fields and are accompanied by gorgeous landscaping.

This race is for anyone, and all are welcome to participate...from walkers who just want to get out and help save cats, to serious runners who want an opportunity to take home a first, second or third place medal.  Even if you have never done a 5K before but feel inspired to do so now, have no fear!  You will be encouraged each step of the way.  And remember, all proceeds go to Fearless Kitty Rescue!
