KCC to Host 5K Rescue Run/Walk Event Benefitting Local Animal Rescues


Share post:

KANKAKEE, IL – Looking for a fun way to support animal rescue organizations in Kankakee County? Lace up your running shoes and join the Youth Advisory Board (Kankakee County State’s Attorney office) for a 5K Rescue Run/Walk event tomorrow at Kankakee Community College.

The event, which starts at 9am for runners and 9:20am for walkers, is open to anyone interested in supporting animal welfare in the community. Registration is $30 and includes an event t-shirt, with participants choosing which local rescue organization will benefit from their donation.

The Kankakee County Humane Foundation will also be in attendance towards the end of the event, bringing along some of their currently adoptable dogs for potential adopters to meet from 10:30am-11:30am at the trails behind KCC.

Even if you’re not participating in the 5K, you can still stop by and say hello to the dogs. “You do NOT have to participate in the 5k in order to stop by to say hello,” the Humane Foundation wrote in a statement.

Don’t miss out on the chance to hang out with some furry friends and support a great cause.
