12th Annual Paws & Claws 5k Raises Critical Funds for the Animals
Our 12th Annual Paws & Claws 5k – our first in-person event in two years – was a tremendous success! It was so wonderful to see all the new and familiar faces, get updates on Baypath alum, and to just be in the presence of so many animal lovers.
Close to 370 two- and four-footed friends came out for an absolutely gorgeous day to celebrate the animals. With the help of our dedicated supporters, we raised over $38,000 to help dogs and cats in need.
We are so grateful for the 26 generous event sponsors, including our Presenting Sponsor VCA Animal Hospitals, and our Starting Line Sponsors Terry Meltzer Attorney at Law, Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design, Entryway Real Estate, Deb & Randy Koopman, and Diane & Jim Garretson for making this big day possible. See all our great sponsors here.
And a special note of gratitude to our 5K Committee members Lauren Drago, Jenn Matthew, Amy Schrepfer-Tarter, and Sharon Shepard, and our 40 wonderful volunteers for making this a spectacular event, including our talented graphic design volunteer Kelly Capek. Kudos to our participants who donated or raised funds for their participation making that much more of an impact.
Please check out our Facebook album to see great pics from the event – and stay tuned for a save the date in the coming months for 2022.
Thank you to all who participated for making such a positive impact on the animals!
