The Wag & Walkathon is PAWS for People's biggest fundraising event of the year! People of all ages are invited to get pledges from their family, friends, and neighbors and come together to complete a cumulative marathon. Some create teams and others participate as individuals.
What is a Cumulative Marathon?
If you have always wanted to run a marathon but 26.2 miles in a few hours is not your style, this is the event for you! There has never been a easier way to do a marathon. Simply log 26.2 miles between September 19 – October 19. The best thing about this event is that you can do it anytime and at your own pace.
Participants can walk with a friend, a pet, or own their own. Everyone can participate in the way they choose. The goal is to get up and moving to reach 26.2 miles over the month!
