This nonprofit rescues abandoned cats and provides adoption opportunities within their no-kill, cage-free shelter.

Meow-A-Thon and Whisker Walk
Participants will have two ways to get a move on for a good cause. If you’re feeling up for a brisk jog, the first event is a 5k race through the park’s varied terrain. You’ll cross open fields, picturesque trials, and even paved pathways. If you just want to get out and enjoy the morning air at a lighter pace, a 1-mile run/walk will follow the race.
