L.I.F.E. House For Animals -- Our Charity Beneficiary/Partner

Proceeds & Donations from the race will support the mission and work of the Betty J. Martin L.I.F.E. House For Animals, Inc. located in Frankfort, KY.  Thank you in advance to those who consider an additional donation on top of your registration fee.

Our Mission
LIFE House for Animals is a no-kill canine and feline adoption facility with managed intake. Our mission is to nurture, celebrate, and reinforce the human-animal bond with successful animal adoptions, preventing overpopulation of pets and providing community education and awareness of animal issues. Our mission is accomplished by making permanent placements based on the individual needs of the animals and adopters.

What We Believe
Euthanasia of animals due to overpopulation will not be performed at the facility. If an animal is fortunate enough to make it to L.I.F.E. House, it will remain there until a home is found whether it takes a day, a week, a month, or a year. As a managed intake facility, our guest’s health and temperament will be assessed prior to acceptance.  We must determine if we have the ability to meet the needs of this animal and provide the quality of care it deserves while in our facility as we nurture and prepare it for adoption.

L.I.F.E. stands for Let Important Friends Exist!

RACE SWAG - Comfy long sleeved performance T-shirts

Our inaugural race shirts will be an orange colored, long sleeved performance/tech shirt in men's, women's and youth sizes.  There is also a "No Shirt - Donate Proceeds" and "No Shirt - SAVE $4.00" option.  Get in early to guarantee your size.
