Charity Highlight

A portion of proceeds from Puppy Run will go to Wigglin Home Boxer Rescue.

Wigglinโ€™ Home Boxer Rescue is a non-profit, all-volunteer group of Boxer owners and lovers covering WA, OR and parts of ID and MT. WHBR knows the great need in our community for re-homing Boxers found in unfortunate situations. These dogs come from all walks of life- neglected, homeless, owner surrendered, owner illness/death and military families unable to keep their beloved dogs due to their service to our country.

We provide this needed service through donors who believe in our mission, as well as fund-raising events. We work diligently to control the Boxer population through mandatory spaying/neutering of our rescued Boxers. Additionally, we provide education on the Boxer personality and care, over-population in shelters and the many dangers of backyard breeding. Adoptive applicants are carefully screened to assure each Boxer is placed with an appropriate forever family, thus coming full circle and completing our goal.

Is this a virtual run / walk? You are CORRECT!

What is a virtual run / walk? A virtual run / walk is one that you do on your own time and on the road, track, or trail of your choice. We give you a flexible timeframe to complete your miles and invite you to the super-supportive Puppy Run community. Once you're done, you can report your results to our official leaderboard, shoot for awards and prizes, and feel fantastic knowing you just benefitted a nature conservation in a fun way.

Why should I participate in this virtual run / walk? Because what's better than getting fit, getting swag, and having a good ol' time in the Puppy Run!? And these reasons:

  1. You'll get some radically awesome, "that's what I'm talkin' about" Puppy Run swag to remember your achievements and a one-of-a-kind, zinger of an experience!
  2. Got a group of friends (or imaginary friends), a kid, or a dog that likes running? Someone you'd like to help get in shape? Sign up and add them on to your registration. This is a great way to get your crew out and about.
  3. A portion of every registration goes to support Wigglin Home Boxer Rescue.
  4. A virtual run / walk is a fun, flexible, stress-free way to participate in an event. You get to run / walk on your own schedule AND connect with fellow participants around the country in our inspiring event community.

Who can participate? Everybody! There is no age limit, no restrictions. So run, jog, walk, or crawl (not recommended, unless youโ€™re a quadruped or really really odd). Go alone, in a group, with your pet -- it's completely up to you. Just get out, be your best, and enjoy yourself!

My kid wants to participate, but I'm sitting this one out. Can I sign them up? Kids can be registered to participate on their own.

I have a group that wants to participate. Can we register as a team? Absolutely! Just select โ€œCreate a teamโ€ or โ€œJoin a teamโ€ on the registration website.

Can I complete the run / walk with a group? Yes! We even have an award for most team members, so spread the word and gather your posse!

Do I have to complete the distance all at once or can I break it up over multiple days? Split it up if you'd like!

When will I receive my swag in the mail? Depending on when you register, your swag items be mailed out a couple weeks before the event starts or shortly after. You'll even receive an email notification when it's been shipped.

Do the medals come with a ribbon? Yes, indeed! Every medal comes with a matching ribbon so you can wear or hang your bling!

I donโ€™t live in the US or Canada, can I still participate? Sure can! While not eligible for prizes, participants outside of the US and Canada can join the fun and win awards with our digital package.

I have an APO/FPO address, can I signup for a swag registration? Affirmative! We're stoked to send swag packages to our military service members and their families overseas. (Note: Transit times are in the hands of USPS mail delivery and may vary by location.)

How can I sponsor this event? Thanks for asking! Please send us an email to info@fitfam.com.

Due to the upfront nature of event costs, we cannot offer refunds, transfers, or deferrals. We also cannot exchange t-shirt sizes. Make sure that you are good to go when you sign up! All sales are 100% final.
