Grab your friends, family, and dog then join us May 16th for the 11th Annual Woofer Walk & 5K! Register for the untimed 1-Mile or the officially timed 5K run on MSU’s beautiful campus to raise funds for the homeless animals of Ingham County. Over a thousand animals are brought into Ingham County Animal Control (ICAC) every year. For some, it is simply waiting for an owner to come and claim them; others require extensive surgery and rehabilitation before they can find their forever home. The Woofer Walk is 100% volunteer, sponsor, and partner driven. This event brings in much needed funds each year, all of which goes directly to the Animal Cruelty Fund and the Ingham County Animal Shelter Fund.

In addition to the walk & 5K we will have a number of vendor booths and fun activities to visit and enjoy before race kickoff.  

**New this year** Why should dogs have all the fun?  Register for the any distance Cat Nap!  Anything goes in this one – if your cat likes to sleep on your lap, be pushed in a stroller, or  go for a walk - it all works.  Enjoy time with your cat, get an official Cat Nap t-shirt (pick up same as Woofer Walk unless otherwise arranged with race managers), and help support the Animal Cruelty Fund and Shelter Fund too.

Awards: Overall male and female and 1st, 2nd and 3rd in age groups male and female Under 20, 21-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70+

Any registrants past the t-shirt order deadline of May 9th will receive a t-shirt at packet pick up.  Sizes are not guaranteed.  Additional shirts will be available for purchase the day of the event.

Registration and Packet pickup will be available at Playmakers Okemos (2299 W Grand River Ave)
Friday, May 15, 5-7PM if you would like to pick up your t-shirt and info (+ race bib) and beat the line on Saturday morning!
