Walk, Wiggle, Wag & Run is the Cape Coral Animal Shelter’s premier family and pet-friendly event! On Saturday, April 15, 2023, hundreds of participants came out for a fun-filled day.
The Walk, Wiggle, Wag & Run event is both a fun walk around our shelter and a 5K timed run. There was music, food trucks, vendor marketplace, pet costume/talent contest, and fabulous giveaways including an event shirt!
Mark Your Calendars – The 2024 event is scheduled for March 23, 2024. Details to come as the event draws closer.
You can decide to register as an individual walker, or you can invite friends and family and create a Pack (team). Read the descriptions below to help you choose which will be right for you.
An Individual Walker is a person who will be fundraising for the animals solo. There is no minimum requirements or registration fee, but we do ask that you set your goals high. You will be eligible to earn incentives at different levels, so ask everyone you know to donate to your Personal Campaign page which you can set up after you register.
Packs are two or more people who raise money together and walk together! You are considered an official Pack when your fundraising reaches $1,500 collectively, but don’t stop there! The more you raise the more prizes you receive. You’ll also be eligible for special “Pack Perks”. Each Pack will select a Pack Leader to help keep them on track with their goals as well as handle any paperwork needed. It’s fun and easy and we are always here to help. Packs have fun planning events and fundraising together or separately. When you reach Pack Status you’ll also be eligible for a Pack photo at the Walk and prizes!
Who can walk?
Anyone and everyone, especially your four-legged friends! Encourage your co-workers, family, friends and neighbors to register for the Walk, Wiggle & Wag for the Animals and help raise money for all the animals at the Cape Coral Animal Shelter!
Even if you decide not to walk, these event activities are open and free to the public.
