Our mission is not only to raise funds to support our official charities but also to promote, raise awareness and support the mission of the organization. A portion of the proceeds from the race will go to:
Second Chance Animal Rescue Society (SCARS) is a non-profit Edmonton and Athabasca based registered charity that is almost entirely volunteer operated.SCARS helps communities by taking in pets that are unwanted or slated for euthanasia. We collect pets from remote area dog pounds and veterinary clinics that act as the pound. We also take in stray and abandoned pets, many of which are sick or injured. Every animal is given a veterinary and behavioural assessment and any medical care or rehabilitation it requires. We spay/neuter, vaccinate & microchip every animal that comes into our care. We find loving homes for more than 1,000 pets every year.
