The Rescue Run 5k  planning committee is hard at work prepping what we hope to be the best ever Rescue Run 5k and Rescue Rally! 

The Monster Milers hosted the first RR5k in 2013, and the event sold out. Since 2013's epic start, The Rescue Run has won multiple awards and is a local favorite among Philadelphia Runners.

Not only does our event support The Monster Miler...

These tips are brought to you by Tonka, our running buddy from PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society)! This is not an exclusive list, but these three tips should help you endure the heat, and in the very least - make you smile! 

1. Wear appropriate gear & dress for the weather. A pair of shades should keep down the glare, and may help to keep the sweat out of your eyes. It's not a fashion show, but it if were, Tonka would win so you might as well not even bother - just make sure your comfortable and well prepared.

Thor is about 3 years old and has been waiting at ACCT Philly for an adoptive family since the very beginning of November. Thor thrives...
