Full Schedule: 2019 NHS Walk for the Animals

By on September 26, 2019

On Sunday, September 29, 2019 (11:00am – 2:00pm), in the NHS meadow, enjoy the latest edition of the Margre Durham Walk for the Animals!

Walk for the Animals is NHS’s biggest annual fundraiser and it encourages people to bring their dogs. The NHS Meadow becomes a tent city with sponsors offering up dog friendly swag, dog activities, a kids zone, silent auction, Beer garden and grill, and lots of outdoor fun. The Walk itself starts in the meadow around 12:30 and swings around to the Keystone Trail. A 5K starts at 11:00, so the course is cleared by 12:30 for walkers.
