St.

Joseph's friends of the animal shelter is participating in the nationwide run, walk for the paws 5k and it's coming up soon.

And here to talk about it is the president from the animal shelter.

I'm talking to a higher up.

We're going to get some very good information about the event coming up.

I understand it's going to be saturday.

How many times have you done this in the past?

This is our seventh annual race.

So seven years in a row this race has been going on.

Bob: okay.

So you're calling it a race.

Is that what it really is or is it something where people are just trying to raise money and go the distance?

It's a bit of both.

We have some competitive runners that truly care about beating their times every time they compete in the competition.

We have the ability to see times by show me running company will be there.

And we also have folks who really just want to come out and support us and just walk leisurely with their dogs.

So it's wonderful that we have that range of options for people.

Bob: that would explain why you have an awards ceremony coming up at 10:00 on saturday.

The actual event begins at about 8:00 or so with some pre-5k activities?

Yes.

At 8:00, you can start moseying through the booths.

We have some local businesses and organizations that are supportive of us one way or another.

We have them set up out at the event as well.

We also have our registration booths there for folks that want to wait until the last-minute to register, as well as the ability to pick up your swag bags and t-shirts for those who haven't done that yet.

Bob: okay.

I'll get back to registration here in a moment.

First, i want to talk about something else you mentioned, and that you're allowed to take a dog with you on the 5k?

Yes.

That makes us one of the more unique races in st.

Joseph.

Most races will allow you to bring a dog but it's not exactly encouraged and ours is, of course, encouraged and we really love to see all the dogs come out.

Bob: yeah, i bet.

We just ask that your dogs are updated on their rabies vaccinations and they're friendly with other dogs because there's typically 100 dogs at the race.

Bob: so this is a money event.

Where does the money go?

The money for the race is going for our new shelter campaign.

I know you've heard about that a lot, but we are still fundraising towards the new animal shelter.

So this is all going towards our wags to riches animal shelter campaign.

Bob: i love that name.

It's clever.

Let's talk about that day and registration again.

You want people to register in advance but they don't have to.

What goes on with that?

Where do you want people to go to register?

They can register up through the morning of the race actually online at runsignup.com/run for paws and if you want to wait and see, you know, what the weather is going to be like the morning of, you can register at the race area itself across from the bode ice arena and the large parking lot across the street from there are at 2500 southwest parkway.

Bob: is that also where the event is going to begin?

Yes.

That's where the race starts and that's where all of our booths are lined up.

Bob: fantastic.

Now afterwards, after the ceremony, you've got the awards and that begins at about 10:00.

When does the actual run/walk begin?

The run begins at 9:00.

But it typically takes the fast runners within 30 minutes or so to be done.

Some of the walkers it takes up to an hour, a little bit longer to get through it all.

Bob: okay.

So it's right at the bode arena area and that's where you go on saturday.

And it is this coming saturday, so not much more time to get ready for a 5k.

Yep.

It's this saturday.

Remember to be there before 9:00 to get all of your race goodies.

Bob: gotcha.

Thank you for being with us.

Good luck on saturday.

I hope you raise a lot of money.

Thank you so much.

We appreciate it.

Bob: thanks.

We'll be back with more "live at 5", we've got a frost advisory tonight.

Tomorrow, 58, not too bad for your thursday.
