Join The Run On Thanksgiving Morning For Helen Woodward Animal Center

Helen Woodward animal Center family mile run

This Thursday, November 27th, Thanksgiving morning will kick off with the first annual Family Mile Fun Run at the Del Mar Racetrack. The new San Diego tradition will gather groups and individuals to stretch their legs and test their speed on a real horse track. Many favorite Del Mar jockeys will be running, jogging and walking too! 

Following the people-friendly one mile run, Helen Woodward Animal Center adoptable pups will hold an adorable race of their own, with hopes of finding a forever family waiting at the finish line.  Additional activities will include kid-focused holiday craft-making, face painting, Thanksgiving Day hat-making with the Rad Hatter, entertainers, opportunity drawings and special surprises for the whole family!

Participants will receive racetrack admission, a fun run t-shirt and the happiness of knowing that a portion of the proceeds from this family-friendly event will go towards Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Therapeutic Riding Program.  Participants are also encouraged to bring cans or sealed bags of pet food for the Center’s AniMeals program – providing food to the pets of the homebound elderly.   A collection bin will be on site.  The Family Mile Fun Run kicks off at 8:00am at the Del Mar Racetrack with festivities going until 10:00am. Then stay for horse racing with a special 11:00am post!
