Greetings, UrgentPODR Supporters!
Thank you for supporting another amazing event! The 3rd Annual Urgent Go Walk Your Dog 5k and 1 Mile Dog Walk was a resounding success! Mother Nature did not fully cooperate, but all of our 4-legged participants, and their 2-legged humans certainly did. It was terrific to meet so many of our supporters & their awesome, well-behaved pups! For those of you who missed it, you can check out some great photos here. We are also featured on NY1.
A huge thank you to all who traveled from near and far, and a big shout out to our volunteers, sponsors, NYC Parks employees, and of course, all of our walkers and runners who enjoyed a day on the beautiful grounds at Wolfe’s Pond Park. We had dozens of fabulous raffles and an appearance by our event mascot, and top fundraiser, Tiny Tony Chicken. A special thanks to all the student volunteers from St Joseph’s By The Sea High School and the women’s volleyball team from The College of Staten Island.
Please post your event day photos on social media, with #WeWalkWithUrgent, and tag @UrgentPart2 on Twitter. Check out our slideshows below:

We are humbled by your support, and expect to reach close to 20K in donations, sponsorship and registration fees. Please share our fundraising page through 10/14/16, and stay tuned for information about how we will put those dollars to work to save more pets!
