Visiting and local pet fans alike can enjoy a fun stroll, walk, jog or run with their furry best friend by signing up for the Annual paws4people 5K & 1 Mile Fun Walk. This event that is celebrating its 11th year in 2020 is a fundraiser that supports a great local cause, but which also provides plenty of comradery and good times for all human and canine participants.

The event launches from the scenic Greenfield Lake Park in the heart of Wilmington, which makes it nicely easy to reach for visitors staying throughout the Cape Fear area. Participants and their canine companions can sign up as teams to complete the 5k or 1 Mile Fun walk that will launch from the pretty local park. Prizes will be awarded to the top runners and dog/runner teams in a number of age categories, and there will also be a 50/50 raffle for participants, and plenty of doggie giveaways. With proceeds benefitting paws4people, a local non-profit organization that places highly trained Assistance Dogs with children and veteran clients for free, folks can feel good about enjoying the Wilmington landscape and a little exercise with their best friend while supporting a wonderful community organization.
