Each spring, NHES begins the season with Tails on Trails 5K & 10K Walk/Run. Held at the beautiful State Arboretum of Virginia at Blandy Experimental Farm in Boyce, Virginia, this event benefits Spay Today. Participants can run or walk by themselves, or bring along their canine companion. Runners have the option of being timed for either the 5K or 10K course.
People have the opportunity to “Sponsor a Shelter Dog,” allowing dogs currently available for adoption at The Briggs Animal Adoption Center to attend the event. These dogs are walked by trained volunteers and are present during the walk for participants to meet. Those whom sponsor a shelter dog have their names added to the back of the event t-shirt, which each sponsor and participant receives upon completion of the walk/run. This event is a great opportunity for people to enjoy a fun-filled day while supporting Spay Today.
