To celebrate surviving social distancing over the past year or so, we are hoping you will forego your social distancing to be part of our second annual virtual challenge! This year we are showing the shelter animals how thankful we are that we can help them by running or walking a 5K. The labor of love shown by our community has helped us persevere through all these difficult times. The one thing that remains unchanged is how much the shelter animals still need our support. Please consider joining us virtually so we are able to provide veterinary care prior to placing them into loving and caring homes.


Between September 6th (Labor Day) and November 25th (Thanksgiving), we challenge our community, near and far, to walk or run a 5K with us while raising our goal of $25,000 for the Cupid Fund. Sounds like a lot but we know with your help, we can do it! Don’t forget to bring your favorite pup(s) with you!



  1. Register for the Virtual Challenge - $35 for humans, pets are welcome to join you though. Your tri-blend t-shirt will be mailed directly to your home when the challenge ends. 

  2. Consider including a fundraiser with your 5K.We've created the page for you, all you have to do is share it! A prize will be mailed to the top fundraiser. Click here to get started.

  3. Starting 9/6/2021, enjoy our interactive online results by logging your 5K time here.

  4. Upload pictures of your effort to help us build that community feeling at a time when we are all trying to get back to normal. 




With an event that includes Halloween, Thanksgiving and ultimately brings happiness to shelter pets, we can't help but include a photo contest! All pictures uploaded of pets will be entered to win in the following categories -  best costume and most inspired picture showing thanks/gratitude. Winners will be notified by e-mail and prizes mailed after the conclusion of the event.

The Cupid Fund is a special fund dedicated to helping our shelter animals that are in need of extraordinary medical treatment. The fund provides care for any animal needing more than the the basics which include spay/neuter and vaccines. All medical tests, blood work, specialist consults, surgery, treatment of illnesses, etc. are paid for by donations to FOSRAS Cupid Fund.


Give your cat a break and get out of their house!
