This year, we’ve added even more options so everyone can help animals in need at PAWS, whether as a walker, a runner, or a virtual walker.</p><p>What is PAWSwalk? PAWSwalk is the annual gathering of animal lovers from all over Greater Seattle. Held on Sunday, September 16 at the iconic Warren G. Magnuson Park on Lake Washington’s shoreline in northeast Seattle, PAWSwalk is more than just a 5k walk/run. PAWSwalk is a fido- and family-friendly festival with dog activities, food trucks, entertainment and a variety of nonprofit and vendor booth. For 27 years, PAWSwalk has been both an important fundraiser and a social “friendraiser” – an event specially designed so participants can encourage friends, family and colleagues to join them in their passion for the PAWS mission.</p><p><strong>5K RUN | 9:00 A.M.   5K WALK | 10:00 A.M.</strong></p><p><a href="https://give.paws.org/event/pawswalk-2018/e183542"><strong>Register Now!</strong></a></p> Wed, 03 May 2017 17:55:27 -0500 https://www.paws.org/support/events/pawswalk/?date=2018-09-16
