7th Annual Canines in Costume for a Cause 5/10k

Walk in honor of your favorite pet. Run in honor of shelter pets that need a second chance.

On the 14th of October, FAHS is hosting their 7th Annual Canines in Costume for a Cause Run. This event includes a 5K and 10k race, a one-mile “fun run” for dogs and their owners, a raffle, and other contests. All proceeds will go directly to the Florence Area Humane Society.

This year, the race will be hosted by The Country Club of South Carolina, and held on the beautiful scenic roads in the surrounding neighborhoods. The course will be timed by Simply Timing- using their state of the art equipment.
