Join us for a fun, furry 5K Run/Walk at Freedom Park with Almost Home Charities (AHC) and BARC Humane Society! Your dog is welcome to join you! This is a FUNdraising event to help this incredible, volunteer-run organization keep rescuing unwanted and unloved animals here in Lowndes and Brooks County to show them that there are people who care! AHC and BARC are 501(c)3 organizations that are dedicated to animal rescue. They rely solely on donations to support their work. This event helps BARC offset costs for rescue such as sponsor fees to pull shelter animals, food and supplies, microchips, medical care, and spaying and neutering. Help us to end animal overpopulation in South Georgia!

All registered runners get a Lost Dog Found 5K T-shirt, but register by September 3rd to get the shirt on race day! Race day registrants can get their shirts at the BARC event the following weekend at PetSmart. T-Shirt Art has been designed by local artist Ethan Abbott.
