Guardians of the Night 2020
July 19 - July 25$30
This year marks the 10 year anniversary of the Guardians of the Night K9 5K, presented by the Richland County Sheriff’s Department K9 Unit. The event began a decade ago as a way to raise vital funds to support and protect all the dogs in the unit. It took on additional meaning in 2011, when K9 Fargo was killed in the line of duty. The event now serves as a way to honor Fargo’s memory while ensuring all the dogs in the K9 unit have food, veterinary care, and safety equipment, including custom-fit ballistic vests for each dog.
We love bringing the community together for this event and we know staying active is important for our mental and physical wellbeing. However, in light of COVID-19 concerns, we made the decision to take the Guardians of the Night K9 5K virtual.
