Although the initial buzz of Rescue Run 2017 may have passed, we STILL find ourselves scrolling through photos marked with hashtag #rescuerun5k with a smile. These pictures show happy runners, happy rescued dogs coming back to visit, and happy shelter dogs who will continue to benefit from the work of The Monster Milers because of YOU. Thanks to our participants, supporters, sponsors and donors, 2017's Rescue Run 5k was a great success! Together we raised over 31k!! These funds will directly finance the continuation of our program and the mission of The Monster Milers. Want to see why we are STILL giddy from the event and why we are ALREADY looking forward to RR5K 2018? Check out the photos below! From placers to first time 5k runners to tuckered out teams, you'll see that no matter what, EVERYONE at RR5K 2017 was cheesin' hard!
Participant @iamiron placed First Female overall, and ALSO won our hashtag contest! She had the most "likes" for tag #rescuerun5k!
Many Rescue organizations and shelters brought adoptable dogs and we are so glad they had a good time! We know of at least THREE adoptions that happened as a result of meet and greets at Rescue Run 5k 2017! Wowza!
The Manayunk Beer Runners may be tired, but they ran for rescue and definitely have something to smile about! Thanks for your support!
Thank you to our top fundraising team! You rocked the Rescue Run 5k!
It's Colby from Street Tails Animal Rescue! Boy did this happy fellow make the rounds that day!
We <3 First Time Runners! Hope you'll be back next year!
