Let’s Race for the Rescues!


Heaven on Earth is gearing up for Race for the Rescues 2016!

This annual walk/run is one of our favorite events, as it combines our love of fundraising to help more cats with the excitement of a 5k/10k race!

Race for the RescuesThis year’s event takes place on Saturday, October 15 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, and the theme is Be a Hero. Ever wanted to run dressed up like a superhero? Here’s your chance! There’s a race for everyone at Race for the Rescues – participants have their choice of a 10k, 5k, 1k dog walk, kids fun run, or couch potato race.

The FREE pet-themed expo at Race for the Rescues has almost every type of animal-related vendor (with many benefitting non-profit organizations), plus there’s a rockin’ adoption show, silent auction, celebrity guests, and more! It’s hard to believe that so many good things can be packed into one event, but trust us β€” it happens!

Please visit our team’s page to support us or join the team!

Registration fees periodically increase as we get closer to race day, so join early!

Participants on Team Heaven on Earth enjoy:

  • A personalized fundraising page
  • Fundraising tips & ideas
  • Fundraising incentives
  • Group training sessions β€” get to know your teammates!

Want to join but can’t be there on October 15? No problemo β€” the couch potato race allows you to fundraise as a member of the team without having to be there in person. See? There really IS something for everyone!

We’re holding a space for YOU on our team. Join us and have a meowvelous time!
