MarathonRun for PAWS in the Philadelphia Marathon

Make your run even more meaningful by raising funds for Philadelphia’s most vulnerable animals. As an official Charity Partner of the Philadelphia Marathon, PAWS has a limited number of guaranteed entries for runners who raise funds for our lifesaving efforts ($1,000 for half marathon/8K runners, $1,500 for full marathon runners).

**Update: thanks to the 2014 team for a very successful Marathon! Together, the team raised over $15,000 for our lifesaving efforts. Stay tuned for information on the 2015 marathon!**
