Join us for our second annual Fast and Furriest 5K: Run. Walk. Wag, on May 21, 2017 at Assembly Row in Somerville! Whether you walk, run, or wag your way along the scenic route near the Mystic River, with every step you take you’ll be making a difference for thousands of animals in need. All funds raised will benefit the animals served by the MSPCA-Angell in its adoption centers, hospitals, and programs.


Volunteers are needed to help with set up and break-down, as well as assisting with cheering sections, food distribution, and medal distribution.


There will be dogs at this event, but MSPCA-Angell asks that volunteers do not bring their own pets. Some positions involve heavy lifting and or standing for long periods of time.


The event will be held at Assembly Row, 698 Assembly Row Somerville, MA. The nearest MBTA stop is the Assembly Row station on the Orange Line. Upon arrival, volunteers should check at the volunteer check-in table. The Event Manager will provide more details about the meeting location as this event gets closer.
