Run to the Rescue, a fundraiser for the Friends of Noah animal rescue group, will host its 4th annual event on Saturday, May 16th at Thresherman’s Park in Edgerton, WI. The race begins at 8:30am and consists of a 5k and 10k run, a one mile walk, and a Kids’ Fun Run.
“It’s a great event for serious runners, yet it’s also kid and dog-friendly,” says Krista Berkley, the event coordinator.
This year, in addition to an accurately measured course, the event is offering chip timing for more precise times. Placement awards will be presented to 5k and 10k runners.

Founded in 2010, Friends of Noah is an all-breed animal rescue group. Noah takes a proactive, full-circle approach to animal rescue in order to keep pets and families together. Through educating young people on the responsibilities of pet ownership, providing free food for pets through nine local food pantries, fostering hundreds of stray and abandoned animals, and helping people who have fallen on tough times with low cost emergency vet care, Friends of Noah aims to stop the cycle of unwanted, neglected, or abused pets.
