On Saturday, October 22nd, dog lovers (and dogs) are invited out to the annual 5K Run for Rover. The event goes from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, and participants can choose to run or walk the 5K. The 5K is slated to take place nearby at Harry Myers Park, which is just two miles from Orion Rockwall—so participating in this feel-good event is super convenient for Orion Rockwall residents.
Registration is just $25 per runner and just $5 per dog. After the run, participants and their dogs can browse items from a range of doggie-centric vendors throughout the park. Proceeds raised benefit Rockwall PAWS, a local organization that saves animals from bad situations and provides them with the care they need. Specifically, funds raised will help pay for treatments for dogs with heartworm. Head out for a good cause this Saturday morning!
