Join Beck’s for our fourth annual 5K run/walk on Saturday, June 10, 2023. Designed to promote health and wellness, Beck’s 5K is a great opportunity for you to get OUT and get MOVING while connecting with the local community and raising money for a great cause! Stick around for the post-race party, including vendor booths and a food truck!
Beck’s is proud to announce that this year’s event will raise funds to support K9s For Warriors. Determined to end veteran suicide, K9s For Warriors provides highly-trained Service Dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury, and/or military sexual trauma. With the majority of dogs coming from high-kill rescue shelters, this innovative program allows the K9/Warrior team to build an unwavering bond that facilitates their collective healing and recovery. Join us in supporting this amazing charity and help give our veterans and these deserving pups a new leash on life!
Calling all K9s and dog lovers! We’re excited to announce that this year’s race is fur-friendly, so bring your leashed K9 sidekick to run/walk with you!
