2017 Tail Chaser 5K/1Mile Walk Fundraiser Challenge

Saturday, March 25, 2017


Lace up your running shoes, grab a leash and get ready for the 5th Annual Tail Chaser 5K and 1 Mile Walk.  This race is one of the first spring races in Roanoke.  By fundraising, your participation will help our mission to create a community where there are no homeless cats or dogs.  

There are many ways to participate in the fundraiser challenge: as an individual, on a team or as a corporate contributor. In our 2015/2016 year, the Roanoke Valley SPCA placed more than 1,300 homeless cats and dogs including in-house veterinary exams, performed nearly 900 in-house spay/neuter surgeries, placed approximately 637 pets in foster homes, offered assistance to the community through the C.A.R.E. (Companion Animal Relief) Fund and the P.E.T. (Pets Eat Too) Programs, as well as outreach programs.  Your efforts will make a difference!

There will be prizes available for each tier of the fundraiser challenge.  In addition to the prizes below, any person (individual, team member or corporate contributor), who raises a minimum of $250 will receive a pack of RVSPCA notecards.
