CSUP, Crossroads', and Addict2Athlete presents the Hero Run for the Southern Colorado Spay and Neuter Association. This year the event is not a fundraiser but a food-raiser. The event will be held at CSU Pueblo's ThunderBowl. There is no specific distance for the run/walk. We invite you to dress like your favorite superhero, and complete as many laps around the field as you can (or want to complete) between 9 am - 10:30 am on October 16th. This year the cost of the race is low; participants will receive a t-shirt for $11, plus a processing fee, but we ask that you bring a bag of dog or cat food in addition to the low-cost race entry. There will be prizes for the best male, female, and children's costumes. Please come be a Hero for Pueblo's Furry Friends, and run/walk a fantastic CSUP football track.
Why donate to SoCO?
The Southern Colorado Spay and Neuter Association (referred to as “SoCO” by the community) is a low-cost, non-profit, veterinary clinic that provides affordable, preventative care to the homed and unhomed pets of southern Colorado.
As a well-established clinic, this non-profit has worked out of the same building, on the south side of Pueblo, since 1997; we have sterilized over 92,000 pets and provided hundreds of thousands of vaccines to community pets without restrictions on income.
In addition to our core mission, “to promote and provide for the humane treatment of animals through affordable population control,” SoCO operates an animal shelter and specializes in special-needs and hard-to-adopt rescue dogs and catsDonations for Hero Run
