ROGUE RUNNING TO HOST 5K BENEFITING LOCAL ANIMAL SHELTER
Rogue Running Hosts Rogue Rescue Run 5K To Benefit Texas Humane Heroes!
Rogue Running will host the Rogue Rescue Run 5K with all proceeds to benefit Texas Humane Heroes. The Rogue Rescue Run 5K will be held on Sunday, September 22, 2013 near Texas Humane Heroes Leander Adoption Center. The 2013 Rogue Rescue Run 5K will also include a Dog Jog 5K as well as Kids’ K. The community is invited to join in the fun and healthy fundraiser directly supporting the life-saving mission of Texas Humane Heroes.
“While we are all obsessed with running at Rogue Running, knowing that we are supporting a great cause gives us that much fire in our step! I look forward to bringing more runners from the community and from Rogue Running to this year’s race, making it the biggest and best event yet!” said Carolyn Mangold, Director of Training with Rogue Running.
“Texas Humane Heroes wants to challenge local runners to make running a 5K about helping to find forever families for homeless dogs and cats in our community. By signing up to run the 5K, jogging it with their dogs, or getting children participating in the Kids’ K, participants can take part in a fun event that provides support to save animals’ lives throughout Central Texas,” said Ron Marullo, Executive Director of Texas Humane Heroes. Marullo went on to say, “The Rogue Rescue Run 5K and Dog Jog is a unique way to raise needed funds. On average it costs $200 to prepare an animal for adoption, including spay/neuter, vaccinations, food, and shelter. We are a private organization and do not receive any government funding. This race is a creative and fun way to engage our local community to help support our mission.”
