Judy V Spencer 5K-9 Fun Run/Walk
June 9, 2024

Please join us for our annual 5K-9 Fun Run/Walk and don't forget to bring your dog!

Through this race, it is our mission to give hope to survivors of violence by raising awareness, engaging in education with the community, and providing funds to support the boarding costs for pets. All funds raised through this event support the Judy V Spencer Fund held at the Bay Area Women's Center to cover the boarding costs for survivors seeking shelter with their pet.

The event is hosted at the Bay County Community Center, 800 John F. Kennedy Dr, Bay City, MI 48706. Race entry comes with fun swag. The race is timed and prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in the male and female categories. Packet pickup begins at 7 a.m. You do not need a dog to participate in this timed 5K race. Please note that this is a dog friendly event and you will be racing with dogs on the course. All dogs must be leashed.​

Help us name our dog!

We love the dog in our logo and have worked with a volunteer designer to give them a fresh look and illustrate them in some poses to bring out their personality. Despite all this personality, our dog has no name! We are hoping you can help. Please fill out the form below with your name suggestion no later than May 30, 2024. Event committee members will select finalists from all submissions and put them to a vote to determine the winner!

Name Our Dog

Thanks for helping name our dog!
