Benefiting A Forever Home Rescue Foundation

Incorporated in 2002 and based in Chantilly, Virginia, a Forever Home Rescue Foundation (AFH) is an all-breed dog rescue group comprised of almost 2,300 volunteers.  Their mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome abused, neglected, and unwanted puppies and dogs.  They rescue dogs from poor, rural shelters with few resources where the dogs have little chance of finding forever homes.  They are experienced first responders during disasters and have extensive experience rescuing dogs from puppy mills and hoarding cases.  They are entirely volunteer-run and receive no federal or state funding.  Their average $400,000 in yearly vet costs are covered through donations and adoption fees.  Through the support of the public and their amazing dedicated volunteers, they average 1,000 rescues every year.

Walkers, strollers and leashed pets are welcome to attend this event.

Now offering a virtual run option for those who cannot make it on race day.  You will receive a medal.

Want to upgrade your technical short sleeve shirt to a long sleeve tech shirt or hooded sweatshirt?  Just add the option to your cart during checkout.  This option closes on our guaranteed t-shirt cutoff date 12 days before the event.
