Jefferson High School: 1010 Weldon Road, Oak Ridge, United States
This event is a fund raiser for 11th Hour Rescue. All proceeds will be donated to 11th Hour Rescue to support the care, feeding and housing of the rescued dogs they care for.
The walk includes a 1 and 2 mile option depending on your interest and fitness level. The course is traffic free. Both walks start and finish with a lap of the high school track. The 1-mile course includes an out-and-back walk on the paved walkway behind Jefferson High School and Middle School while the 2-mile course adds an section of unpaved (grass and dirt) path that enters into adjacent Mahlon Dickenson Park.
About Eleventh Hour Rescue: Based in Morris County NJ, Eleventh Hour Rescue is primarily a volunteer based, no-kill rescue that saves animals on Death Row from high kill shelters. Eleventh Hour Rescue dogs and cats are cared for by our compassionate and dedicated team of volunteers and staff. Whether in foster homes, our kennel or adoption centers, each dog and cat receive a clean and safe living environment, fresh food and water, medical attention, and most important an abundance of love and care until they find their forever homes. We are dedicated to educating the community about the animal over population problem and the importance of spaying and neutering. All funds go directly to supporting our animals and their needs. We are an eligible charity under federal code 501(c)3.
Registration opens at 9 am and the walks start at 9:30 am. Plenty of free parking is available in the Jefferson High School parking lot.
Comfortable clothing and walking shoes are recommended.
Walkers can choose to complete the 1 or 2 mile course. The 1-mile course is entirely on the track and paved walkway behind Jefferson High School and Middle School while the 2-mile course includes an unpaved trail segment, both grass and dirt, that is part of Mahlon Dickenson Park.
Snacks, water and music will be provided after the walk. Adoptable dogs will be onsite.
