Because animals do not have a voice. Four million cats and dogs-about one every eight seconds-are put down in U.S. shelters each year. Most of these animals die unwanted and alone.
Race For The Rescues believes that by uniting animal lovers and animal welfare organizations to work together we can change those heartbreaking statistics and make our world a better place.
The donations raised through Race For The Rescues will be used to help save the lives of once forgotten dogs, cats and horses and help them become cherished family members. In addition, providing important programs to the community such as veterinary care for the pets of low-income families, free spay and neuture clinics and a shelter intervention program.
Please join us to run, walk, shop or adopt! Or be there in spirit by registering for our Couch Potato race or making a donation.
It’s time to get ready for SoCal’s biggest & best Thanksgiving tradition, the Burbank YMCA Turkey Trot. Whether you’re a competitive runner, casual jogger or enthusiastic runner, this Turkey Trot is for you.
More than 3,500 Burbank YMCA members, local residents and dedicated runners from the Los Angeles area descend upon the streets of downtown Burbank to enjoy an event filled with fitness, family, friends and fun!
All proceeds support the Y’s Financial Assistance Program, a program
that makes it possible for everyone, regardless of means, to enjoy Y
programs & services. We’ve promised to never turn anyone away
because of inability to pay, and we’re only able to keep that promise
because of funds raised through events like Turkey Trot. So run, walk,
or push a stroller…have a great time while you support a great cause!
