DOG-FRIENDLY 5K & 1K IDA LEE PARK, LEESBURG, VA OCTOBER 20th, 2019
Leesburg Veterinary Hospital is proud to be hosting our second annual 'Paws for your Heart' 5K/1K run/walk at Ida Lee Park in Leesburg. This dog-friendly race is a non-profit501c-3. Proceeds from this race allow for Heartworm positive dogs that are greatly in need of treatment to be pulled out of local shelters and given a chance at life. Heartworm treatment can be extremely costly and prolonged so these dogs are often overlooked. With funds from this race, we can treat more of these dogs so they’re eligible for adoption taking the great strain off our local shelters. Simply put, this is a win-win for our community. We are excited to welcome back Potomac River Running who will be our DJ/MC for the October 20th event!
