American Legion Post 30, located in historic Edgefield, SC, is bringing the community together for a day of fun and fellowship by hosting the Service Dog Dash 5K together with a 1-Mile Fun Run. We invite participants of all ages, human and canine, to help us raise funds for Veterans K9 Solutions. After the race, stick around, have lunch, and take a stroll through our historic and charming downtown.
Veterans K9 Solutions is a veteran-owned, family-run 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to training shelter dogs as service companions and pairing them with disabled veterans. The goal of the organization is to bring two deserving parties together: rescuing a canine while also rehabilitating a veteran. (Veterans K9 Solutions)
The Service Dog Dash 5K will take place on November 13, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. at the Edgefield Veterans’ Memorial Park located directly across the street from the National Guard Armory, 225 Augusta Rd. Edgefield, SC 29824.
The race course for both the 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run follow a relatively flat, paved road that winds through one of our rural Edgefield neighborhoods. Runners, joggers, walkers, and strollers are encouraged to participate. Well-socialized dogs are also welcome on a 6’ or shorter leash; retractable leashes are not permitted.
After the race, we encourage all participants, family members, and friends to visit the Edgefield 2nd Saturday Market at Piedmont Technical College on Main St. and enjoy lunch around the historic Edgefield Town Square.
