The Society for the Improvement of Conditions for Stray Animals (SICSA) hosts their annual Lift Your Leg Run & Walk for Strays this Saturday, June 6, 2015 at Centerville High School (500 East Franklin Street, Centerville, Ohio 45459). Each year, over 800 people and their dogs join together and raise money, run and walk in support of animals in need. Lift Your Leg helps thousands of animals annually by raising critical funding for their care and adoption.
Participants can choose between the 10K, 5K, and a fun 1-mile course. In addition, before and after the race, experience our Vendor Village of supporting businesses and organizations. There will be several food options available, as well as canine entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. And don’t forget the RUFFle Raffle, where you can enter to win a $3,000 gift card to Elizabeth Diamond Company! Tickets for this terrific raffle item will be available for purchase on event day (you can also purchase some when you register!). Raffle ticket prices are $5 each, $10 for three, or $20 for seven.
They will also have several human and furry friend contests you can participate in while you are awaiting course awards. Fun contests include Best Dressed Human/Pet Pair, Oldest Present SICSA Alumnus, and a Dog Talent Contest.
You may register individually or as a team. In addition to awarding prizes to runners in several different categories (best times by race length, age, and with dog), SICSA also awards the largest fundraisers in team and individual divisions. Teams of 6 or more receive a free upgrade to an athletic performance t-shirt, a $5 value per participant!
