This event, organized by the Ohio House Rabbit Rescue is meant to educate and build excitement around companion rabbits, while also raising money to help abandoned pet rabbits.
Ohio House Rabbit Rescue (OHRR) is dedicated to building and operating a center for rescued and abandoned pet rabbits, offering a robust adoption program, and providing educational resources and programming on the proper care of house rabbits. OHRR envisions a community where all pet rabbits live indoors as companions and have access to a proper diet, habitat, and regular veterinary care for the duration of their life. Each year, more than 900 unwanted central Ohio pet rabbits are offered for surrender at animal shelters or rescues which have no space for them–or they are just released outdoors. OHRR seeks a better alternative.
The proceeds of this race will go towards making the vision of a rescue center a reality.
The race will be a 3.1 mile run or a 1 mile Fun Run/Walk. The top three overall runners will receive an award. Register online and pick up your race packet at Fleet Feet Columbus from September 20-22, or register the day of the race. Race registration begins at 8:00 a.m. and the race will start at 9:00 a.m.
