Vets To Vets United "The 5K9 Dog Jog"

Cary, NC

Vets to Vets United 5K9 Dog Jog
Sunday, October 6, 2024

It's a fun way to support local disabled Veterans & their service dog in training!

Join us on the Cross-Country Course at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, NC, to run, jog, walk, or cheer—with or without your furry friend. The course combines an open field and a natural trail that will be fun for runners of all ages and skill levels!

Vets to Vets United, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprising local veterinarians and volunteers. Our mission is to help Veterans suffering from physical and/or emotional disabilities, including potential for suicide, by matching them with rescued shelter dogs to be trained for service. All proceeds from the 5K9 Dog Jog will help cover the $20,000 program costs so our wounded warriors can focus on the healing power of the animal/human bond. Your participation in this event will help us improve and save lives, one Veteran and one dog at a time!

Race Day check-in or registration is at 9:00 am. The opening ceremony begins at 10:00 am.
