The annual 'Run for the Animals' to benefit Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary in Poolesville will be happening this year as a virtual race.

Sign up at, and then do the run or walk on your own...when you want, where you want!

Normally the race is a 5k. You can do that distance, or whatever distance you're most comfortable doing.

Feel free to post a picture or video of yourself completing your run or walk on the Poplar Spring 'Virtual 5k Run for the Animals' Facebook page here.

The race supports the more than 250 rescued animals at Poplar Spring. If you're inspired, do some additional fundraising! Prizes will be awarded to the top two fundraisers.

The race was scheduled for Sunday, May 17, so on that day at 1 p.m. Terry Cummings, co-founder of Poplar Spring, will be giving a virtual tour of the sanctuary via Facebook Live.

I'm waiting for the the next sunny day, and then doing a long walk with my dog, Riley!

I was lucky enough to visit Poplar Spring a few weeks ago and met some of the rescued animals. I've been posting videos here at, and also on my social media pages, so be sure and check them out at Lisa Berigan On The Radio on Facebook and @lisaontheradio on twitter and Instagram.
