Participating in the Richmond SPCA's Dog Jog and 5K Run is naturally rewarding because it supports thousands of orphaned dogs and cats. We also award prizes to add to the fun, and to recognize the wonderful efforts that help make this event a success. In 2013, prizes and awards that may be earned by top fundraisers, top 5K Run finishers and other supporters include:
