Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary is hosting its 11th annual "Run for the Animals." The 5K run and 1 or 1.7 mile fun walk is a fundraiser dedicated to supporting the life saving work Poplar Spring does everyday.

From the warm up, running and walking on the scenic trails, the dog and people raffles, the prizes, and the abundance of food, a good time is had by all. The race is held at Wheaton Regional Park in Wheaton, Maryland. Although dogs cannot participate in the run, they are more than welcome to come out and join the 1 or 1.7 mile walk.

The course runs through beautiful Brookside Gardens with the first two miles FLAT!
