This weekend I raced in the K9s United in the Nocatee Community for the K9s United 9K for K9s. This annual event included the 1 mile fun run (untimed), the classic 5k and new for 2018, the challenging 9k (which I did)! Both the 5k and 9k were chip timed they had awards for the top runners in each category.
In addition to the race there was amazing post-race activities for the whole family that included kids arts and crafts, a K-9 photo booth to get your picture taken with your favorite K9 Hero, and everyone’s favorite, a K-9 demonstration.
If you think that you cannot afford the race with this race there was an option to RUN FOR FREE! If you raised $100 or more though our fundraising portal, you were then able to run in the race of your choice for free! This was a great way to support our K9 Heroes and receive a great reward yourself.
What I like to hear is that 100% of the proceeds benefited K-9s United an organization that is committed to supporting and honoring K-9 law enforcement officers who detect, protect and serve our communities by giving them the best equipment, amenities, and quality of life during and after their service, and memorializing those who give the ultimate sacrifice.
