Human Race 2019

It’s that time of year again — Human Race 2019 is on the horizon! We have reached our NINTH year participating in this amazing event. This year’s theme is “Walk for Change”. We look forward to teaming up with all of you wonderful supporters and fellow animal lovers to meet our fundraising goal. Let’s RACE to the rescue of many animals in need!  

 Saturday, May 11th

As you may know the Human Race is a wonderful opportunity for non-profits in our community to put their best foot (or four) forward to get great publicity and raise funds! 

This year’s theme is “Walk For Change” and we plan to do just that! The more team members we have on the beautiful West Cliff walk, the more dogs we can walk, funds we can raise, and fun we can have. There will be good times, live music, and free food. What more could you ask for?

To be successful in this years Human Race, we are looking for 40+ team members to help us put the “Fun” in fundraising! You can join our team as an individual or create a Champion Team with your place of work or business. 

If you’re interested in joining the fun in one way or another, click the button below and register for Team SCSPCA!


Track Our Progress!

Help Us Reach Our Goal of $20,000!

If we had 40 volunteers — raising $85 a week — for six weeks — that would equal $20,400! 

See where we are going with this — sounds doable right? Can you imagine what we would raise if we had even more team members, raising even more money per week, for six weeks!? We could blow right past our goal and set a record high!
