Heart & Sole Walk/5K Run for Animals 2020

The Potter League’s 31st Annual Heart & Sole Walk/5K Run for Animals is going virtual and it’s happening on Sunday, October 18, 2020, wherever you are! We may be walking in our own neighborhoods, but we will still walk together for the animals.

Join us virtually by walking (or running) with your pet for as long or short as you would like. You can walk anywhere and support the Potter League with or without your dog (and you can even show your cat or other small animal some love virtually this year!) Start a tail-wagging fundraising team or go solo. Just make sure to have fun and stay safe!

The Heart & Sole Virtual Walk/Run for Animals proceeds provide food, shelter, veterinary care, and more to the thousands of animals who come to Potter League every year. In addition to the Walk, there will be a roster of fun-filled activities—including a Virtual Vendor Village, contests, and prizes to enjoy. 

Lace up your sneakers and grab the leash, because it's time to walk to save lives! The animals are counting on us and we are counting on you!
