Please join us for the 16th Annual Cat Caper 5K walk/run benefiting the Cat Welfare Association on Sunday, October 2nd at 10am.  We have once again outgrown our venue and the 2022 event will be held at the Westerville Community Center located at 350 N Cleveland Avenue.

Our new location provides ample parking and a racecourse that is flat, paved, scenic & fun.   Participants will once again have a chance to connect with nature while running or walking the 5K.  If you have not been to this amazing park, October 2nd is your date to go!

As with the past, bring all your friends or family and save!  If you register 5 or more for the 5K and everyone in the group gets $5 off their entry!  Each member of the group needs to register in the same 'cart' and the discount will automatically appear when you check-out.
