Please join us at our annual Lift Your Leg Run & Walk for Strays! This year’s event will be held on Saturday, June 6, 2015 at Centerville High School (500 East Franklin Street, Centerville, Ohio 45459). Each year, over 800 people and their dogs join together and raise money, run and walk in support of animals in need. Lift Your Leg helps thousands of animals annually by raising critical funding for their care and adoption.
Participants can choose between the 10K, 5K, and a fun 1-mile course. In addition, before and after the race, experience our Vendor Village of supporting businesses and organizations. We will have several food options available, as well as canine entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. And don’t forget the RUFFle Raffle, where you can enter to win a $3,000 gift card to Elizabeth Diamond Company! Tickets for this terrific raffle item will be available for purchase to the public at SICSA prior to the event as well as on event day (you can also purchase some when you register!). Raffle ticket prices are $5 each, $10 for three, or $20 for seven.
We will also have several human and furry friend contests you can participate in while you are awaiting course awards. Fun contests include Best Dressed Human/Pet Pair, Oldest Present SICSA Alumnus, and a Dog Talent Contest. This is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
Ready to lift a hand and a leg? Online registration is open now! You may register individually or as a team. In addition to awarding prizes to runners in several different categories (best times by race length, age, and with dog), SICSA also awards the largest fundraisers in team and individual divisions. We have great prizes for our top fundraisers! Teams of 6 or more receive a free upgrade to an athletic performance t-shirt, a $5 value per participant! Register by May 27 to guarantee an event t-shirt! Fees are $25 for adults (13+) and $15 for youth (12 and under) and include a cotton t-shirt.
