Participating in the Canine Classic, with or without your canine(s), is healthy and fun. It also helps support Moving to End Sexual Assault (MESA). Thank you!

Through this event we have an additional way that you can help raise funds for MESA. Whether you raise funds as an individual or as a group, the following information will be helpful:

Below are simple steps to make it happen: 

Recruit others to join you at the Canine Classic: Ask family members, friends, co-workers, classmates, and/or neighbors to register and join you at the event.

Become a fundraiser: Invite the people you know to sponsor your 5k at the Canine Classic. They will be happy to help support you! Go to the Become a Fundraiser page for instructions on getting started. 

Make a donation: Visit the Canine Classic donation page and make a one-time donation. 

Corporate matching gift: Ask your employer if they will make a contribution, or better yet match your efforts to the cause. Most corporations have budgets for this purpose.


You will be moved by the generosity that surrounds you. This generosity will further MESA's ability to one day see an end to sexual assault.
