There are so many great ways to get out doors this spring and now you can bring your best friend along for the ride...or should I say run.

The Beacon Animal Rescue Foundation has announced its first ever 5k run/walk with the dogs. Happening May 22nd at the Memorial Park in Beacon at 9am. Participants can walk or run solo or you're welcome to bring your furry friend (as long as their friendly, vaccinated and leashed) to enjoy in the day.

The organization says the event is a fun non-competitive, family friendly event which will benefit the foundation. Allowing them to continue their efforts in aiding animals right here in the Hudson Valley.
