Paces for PAWS is a dog friendly event so please bring your best canine companions to participate in the festivities (don’t forget leashes, please)! With this event, we hope to provide an opportunity for people of all ages in our community to help homeless and abandoned animals receive the medical care, shelter and companionship they need until their forever homes are found.
Event check-in will begin at 7:30 AM, with the 5k Race beginning at 8:30 AM. If running isn’t your thing, you can still join in on the fun! The 1 mile Family Fun Pledge Walk will begin at 9:30 AM (please arrive for check-in by 9:00 AM). Walk with your dogs, kids or friends; come out in silly hats or costumes; make it your own and most importantly, have some fun!

Last year we gave over $10,000 to programs that supported our local communities through monies raised during the Lake Auburn Half Marathon, 5K Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run.

All the funds raised at the Frightening 5K go directly to the 501c3 Non-Profit, One Community Many Voices (www.ocmv.org). OCMV provides gap funding through a model called: The Art of Good Fellowship – Paying it Forward One Neighbor at a Time.

OCMV is currently collaborating with Hospitality House, MCH, AIO, Rockland and Waldoboro Police Departments, Youthlinks, Knox County Community Health Coalition, Trekkers, Pen Bay YMCA, and The Shields Project. OCMV is a place for these agencies to turn to for simple human solutions to barriers when they have no other means to help an individual that meets the criteria.
