Do you want your furry little pal to be a part of something big? Here is a chance for you to compete in a race along with your dog and work for a greater cause!
Join us for Doggies for Duchenne – 5 Year Anniversary Run, which will not only be a great bonding opportunity for you and your furbaby, but it will also benefit 2 charities – Humane Society at Lakewood Ranch and Another Day for Gray.
100% of the proceeds will be split evenly between both charities. The Humane Society at Lakewood Ranch rescues and saves animals and assists their newly adopted families/owners in being responsible and caring for them. Another Day for Gray continues the fight to end Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, giving Grayson Tullio and other boys with Duchenne the chance for longer, better lives.
This adorable puggie is ready for the big event – are you?
The event will include the following:
- Individual 5K Run
An individual chip-timed 3.1-mile run
- Individual 5K – Kids (Under 13)
A chip timed 3.1-mile run for the kids under the age of 13.
- Human/Canine 5K Team
The perfect duo – human and canine – and a chip-timed 3.1-mile run.
- Crossfit WOD Challenge – The Hooch
Named after Hooch, Grayson’s service dog, this workout (WOD stands for “Workout of the Day” in Crossfit World) shall be as follows – with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medal finishers for both males and females:
-200-meter run “buy-in” 100-80-60-40-20

-Burpees 200 meter run “buy out”
This a team race, where two dry-triathletes (you and your partner) will participate in a 5K run (together) + 5000M Row and Crossfit WOD (divided between you and your teammate). Remember, this a signature event that sells out like hot cakes! So, reserve your spot as quick as possible!
