Leash up your dog and lace up your running shoes! New location and date this year!  


4 Paws for Ability trains and places service dogs with children and veterans with disabilities. The cost to train and place a service dog is $40,000 to $60,000. Fundraisers such as the 4 Paws 5K help us raise money to continue our mission! Thank you for your support!


Race info

The 5K and mile walk will be held at the Greene County Fairgrounds and Expo Center in Xenia, Ohio on Saturday, June 26, 2021. After the race, check out the crafters and vendors at Zinnia Days in the Expo Center and then come tour the new addition to the 4 Paws campus just a five minute drive away! 


This is a dog friendly event; dogs must be fully vaccinated, on leash, and be able to behave well around other dogs.
