Take advantage of this week’s ROLLBACK!!
                        Beginning 8/30 thru 9/4, use code ROLLBACK and get $10 off registration.



Out of an abundance of caution, this year’s event is now virtual!  We will continue to raise awareness and funds for the homeless animals in Burlington County while insuring the health & safety of our participants.  Our gratitude for everyone’s support right now is immense as we now must also work to help keeping pets in their homes during this difficult time.

To make this year’s event as interactive as possible, we’ve created a  Paw Prints Virtual 5K Run/Walk Strava Club! Strava is a free application you can download on your smart phone or other fitness device to track your miles in support of the Friends of Burlington County Animal Shelter..  Once you register for the event, you can then join the club to become eligible for awards at our Virtual Day Of Ceremony on October 4th.

Beginning September 6th through September 26th, use the Strava app to record activity.  We’ll begin tracking your progress and each week we will announce our top three distance runners/walkers.on our Facebook group page.  

Registration is $30 for all participants                                                                                                                                                                                  
First (100) registered participants will receive standard event t-shirt.   

In addition to your physical activity will be three mission challenges to complete throughout the month.  For each challenge completed, an opportunity will be earned to win a $25 Target Gift Card.
