Come rediscover the joy of putting a skip in your step at this fun, uplifting fundraising event in honor of the Hopalong & Second Chance Animal Rescue.
Skipping is something that almost everyone did as children, but far too often lose touch with as an adult. Not only does it have all the benefits of a good workout...it generates a tremendous amount of positive energy...and is a lot of FUN too!
This event is appropriate for all ages and fitness levels (and well behaved dogs are welcome too). Fear not if you don’t like to skip because enthusiastic walkers are more than welcome too! There will be designated skipping zones marked along the 1.5 mile route where short bursts of skipping are encouraged, but not required. Of course, those who are seeking more of a physical challenge, will also have the option of skipping the entire distance.
Bright colors, tutus, wings, and other fun clothing and accessories are strongly encouraged!
Registration for the event is a fully tax deductible $20 and includes an “I love skipping” bumper sticker and a floral lei. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the Hopalong & Second Chance Animal Rescue.

You accept that you cannot claim any damages, indemnification or any other compensation for personal injury, damage to property or any other loss from Hopalong or iSkip.com.
