Join us to celebrate and provide financial support to Service Dogs for Veterans. This organization rescues shelters dogs and trains them in partnership with a military veteran in need. 100% of proceeds go directly to Service Dogs for Veterans sd4v.org
This is an event for everyone, including Dogs! Completing the walk earns your four-legged friend (if you choose to bring your pup) a prize of their own. The 5k race, on the campus of Clemson University will have awards for overall, age group and team winners. Additionally, top individual and team fund raisers will receive special recognition at the post-race awards. The dog walk kicks the event off at 7:45 am and the full schedule for Puppies and Patriots is detailed below.
Our Virtual Race option is a great way to participate even if you can’t make it in person! All virtual race participants will have a medal and shirt shipped to them, and shipping is included in the price of registration!
Veterans and their service dogs will be in attendance as special guests of honor. Please register for the races, attend in person to support the charities or sponsor a runner to make this event a day to remember!
Note: To be considered for chip timing in the run, registration must take place before Friday, May 28th 2021 at 8 p.m.
