The 26th Annual Walk for Animals 2014
Every year, animal lovers fetch their sneakers, leash up their pooches (or walk without a pooch) and take a walk together on this special day. Walkers raise money by finding friends, family, colleagues, businesses, co-workers - any animal lovers - to sponsor them. Get a team together or come as an individual participant. Teams are a great way for groups, businesses and organizations to get involved and a lot of fun for groups of friends, but every individual walker can make a difference too. All of the information and tools you need to get started will be posted here, on our Facebook page and at monadnockhumanesociety.org/ soon! This First Giving site will be a convenient way to start your fundraising!
This year is the 26th annual Walk for Animals and will take place at the Dillant-Hopkins Airport. Our 25th anniversary walk went so great last year that we are really excited to see what we can accomplish this year! There will be two courses. Choose from either a one-mile or a three-mile course on a paved road that winds through beautiful fields and wooded areas. The road will be closed to traffic for the day.
The 26th Annual Walk for Animals will begin with the traditional opening parade led by Bright, Jesse and James - the Swanzey Oxen of Open Space Protection at 10AM. Registration begins at 9AM. Children are welcome and encouraged to participate! The walk itself will conclude by 2PM with a picnic lunch, a DJ, and an awards ceremony with prizes for the top fundraisers in adult, youth and team categories.
We are dedicated to providing accurate event information, however, we advise calling ahead to confirm dates, times, location, and other details.
