BAHS is working on postponement plans for this event and we will provide details as soon as possible.  We truly appreciate your support during these uncertain times. Thank you for understanding and Stay Safe. 

Get your tail moving and join the Belleville Area Humane Society’s annual Race for Rescues 5K at Belleville West High School!
This year, we’re offering an early bird special!
Registration will be $25 until March 20th.  On March 21st, the price goes up to $30, so register early to get the deal!  We also have a 10% military discount. Dogs race for free.

You can race on your own or with your dog. We’ll be holding a timed event for both humans and canines. The top three division winners in each age group will receive a shiny medal and bragging rights! Top three overall winners in both the male and female divisions will receive trophies. Participants of all ages and physical capabilities welcome–we’re having a one mile fun run and kid’s fun run this year.
Age group divisions are as follows:
13 and under
60 and over

Come out for exercise and excitement to help raise money for shelter animals. We’ll be showing off some of our adoptable buddies so come even if you can’t run.
