May 21st | Soldier Field, Chicago | 9am - 12pm
Saturday, May 21 marks The Anti-Cruelty Society's 22nd annual 5k walk, Bark in the Park. This year's brand new location is at the home of the Chicago Bears, Soldier Field! Enjoy sweeping skyline views as you stroll along Chicago's famous lakefront path surrounded by fellow animal lovers and their canine companions. After the walk, enjoy a morning of fun and long-lasting memories with your pooch on the Stadium Green and receive COMPLIMENTARY CANINE MASSAGES from the Chicago School of Canine Massage!
CSCM will have a large team of students, graduates, and instructors volunteering their time. Outreach events like Bark in the Park give students real-life, hands-on experience. They will be providing 15 minute post-event sports massage sessions to all 4-legged participants. These sessions are crucial in helping animals recover from exercise, thereby preventing soreness and injury. Students also have the opportunity to share the benefits of massage with the community.
Bark in the Park is the Society's single largest fundraising event of the year. This important fundraiser was the first pet-friendly event held in Chicago; and with more than 3,000 animal lovers, supporters, and walking enthusiasts returning, they anticipate this year being the best yet!
Day of registration opens at 7 a.m. and the walk steps off at 9 a.m. After the walk, participants will take part in a celebration complete with canine agility courses, product samples from small business sponsors, dog massages, a pawdicure spa, caricature drawings, arts and crafts, relay races, family friendly activities, plus free snacks, souvenir photos, 50/50 cash raffle, and much more.
We hope you can join us to help support The Anti-Cruelty Society and all the amazing work they do for the animals. Help us make this event the biggest ever by sharing with your family, friends, and colleagues. Thanks!
