The Heart & Sole 5K Run/Walk is a major fundraiser for the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter and a wag of a great time!! It’s an annual event that draws animal lovers from all over to share the day amongst, with, and in honor of 4-legged friends. Friends, participants and canines descend upon the flat trails and picturesque backdrop of Duke Island Park for a day of NJ autumn fun in Bridgewater, NJ. In addition to the 5K event (Timed), the day includes vendors, activities, special guests, raffles, K-9 demonstrations, live music, food, agility introduction, and of course, a chance to meet friends and furbabies.
WHAT'S NEW THIS YEAR?
Walk OR run with your dog! As a participant this year, you have the option to walk and/or RUN with your dog! Dogs can join the race starting at 9:30AM.
Dress your dog! Halloween isn't just for kids anymore. There will be a Doggy Halloween Costume Contest this year. Be creative!
100% of all event proceeds benefit the animals. Monies predominantly go toward the Cupid Fund, a fund reserved for animals in need of more complex medical treatment than what an average shelter can typically provide. FOSRAS and SRAS work as a team to organize on-site and off-site adoption, fundraising events, volunteers, learning opportunities and more. Upcoming events, registration links and photos of prior years’ event can be found on The Friends of Somerset Regional Animal Shelter website at www.FOSRAS.com.
