The Furriest Fun Run You've Ever Seen–$20K+ For PetSmart Charities

It was a PAWsome day at the PetSmart 5K-9 Fun Run, as part of our partnership with the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee. With the Big Game only a few weeks away here in Arizona, more than 1,000 pet parents and 700 pups running alongside them came together to get their steps in while also supporting the work of PetSmart Charities. In honor of the Big Game’s 57th year, 57% of the proceeds from the fun run will benefit PetSmart Charities—which provides homes, food, help and support for pets in need.

We're sending a very special thanks to the dedicated volunteers, partners, and sponsors who helped make this wonderful event happen.

This event is just one of the ways we are connecting pets and pet parents while showing our pride in our home state. Special thanks to all the volunteers and participants who came together to make it happen!

– J.K. Symancyk, CEO at PetSmart

We know pet parents enjoy getting outside and being active with their pets, so we wanted to offer pets and their people a way to make some great memories together. Every registration benefits PetSmart Charities, so participants are directly impacting work that transforms the lives of pets and the people who love them.

It was my pleasure to attend the 5-K9 presented by PetSmart. In celebration of the 57th Superbowl which will be held at Cardinals Stadium, J.K. Symancyk, CEO of PetSmart and I gratefully received a check for 57% of the proceeds from the event to benefit PetSmart Charities, thanks to the Arizona Superbowl Host Committee. Big thanks also to our partners at the @Arizona Animal Welfare League and the Maricopa County Animal Care & Control for bringing adoptable pets to the grounds. It was a beautiful day to celebrate the special bond between pets and people while getting in some steps (and trots)!

- Aimee Gilbreath, PetSmart Charities President
