In 2014, SWMI RACERS partnered with the Whirlpool Veterans Association to create a 5K that would not only honor Veterans Day but would also benefit a veterans’ organization. RACERS members discovered Stiggy’s Dogs, a 501(c)3 organization based in Howell Michigan, and the RACERS Rescue Run 5K was born! In 2019, Stiggy's Dogs transitioned to Blue Star Service Dogs.
The RACERS Rescue Run is a dog-friendly event! All dogs must wear ID tags, be on a leash (no flex leashes permitted), socialize well with other dogs, be current on rabies vaccinations, be at least six months of age, and not be in heat. Please clean up after your pet, throughout the event. Please include your dog when you register.
