To Do: Rescue Run 5K to Benefit The Monster Milers

Run a race to help man's best friend find a home

Dog lovers, I would like to introduce you to your new favorite 5K: The Rescue Run, set for September 29th in the Navy Yard and aimed at benefitting and promoting dog adoption in Philadelphia. All proceeds will go to The Monster Milers, which is a totally awesome, local nonprofit that pairs up dogs in Philly shelters with local runners who take them out for jogs through the city. After the race at 10 a.m., there will be a “Rescue Rally,” where you’ll find a few adorable pups up for adoption, local venders and food. Register here.

If you’d rather to toast the Monster Milers with a beer, you can attend the group’s happy hour fundraiser at the Green Room on June 27th.

$25 until July 31st, $30 after, September 29th at 10 a.m., 4747 South Broad Street, Philadelphia.
