2018 Paws for the Cure Dog Walk & 5K Run | Komen Greater PA

Celebrating our 10th Annual Paws for the Cure

 Susan G. Komen Greater Pennsylvania is excited to kick-off October and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with our 10th Annual Paws for the Cure Dog Walk & 5K Run! You read that right – we are introducing a 5K USATF certified timed run to this family and pet-friendly event. Participants can still enjoy a scenic one-mile walk through Hartwood Acres or decide to take a run, with or without their furry friend, through the park! Back this year will be the ever-popular dog contests, apple bobbing station, photo ops, and fun sponsor and vendor booths. Dogs (and humans) of all breeds are welcome to participate in this fun-filled fall festival morning in beautiful Hartwood Acres at the height of Autumn.
