The Capitol Nutrition family is excited to raise awareness and funds for military veterans and shelter dogs by hosting our first annual fundraising 5k. The goal of Pets for Vets is to help heal the emotional wounds of military veterans by pairing them with a shelter dog that is specially selected to match his or her personality. Needy shelter dogs receive a second chance at life while giving our returning soldiers a second chance at health and happiness.
This is the first annual Capitol Nutrition Pets for Vets 5k. We are expecting 500 runners. We will be offering prizes, runner goodie bags, t-shirts and even a supplement sample bag for all finishers!
- Scenic Course at Centennial Park
- Electronic timing devices
- Awesome and shining medals for top placed runners in different age groups
- Unique t-shirts for all 5k runners that you will want to wear even outside of the 5k!
- Supplement sample bag for all runners
- Free Spray Tan for Each Runner at Spray of Sunshine in Mokena, IL
