See the highlights of the 2016 Chariots of Fur Beach Run & Festival in this awesome video created by Atlantic Video Productions. The Chariots of Fur Beach Run & Festival is Jacksonville’s most popular beach run for 2-legged and 4-legged participants. Proceeds from the 2016 event went to St. Francis Animal Hospital’s Helping Paws Fund to help family pets in need of medical care. Thanks to the support of local businesses and participants, more pets in our community will be able to live long and healthy lives with their loving families!

2016 HIGHLIGHTS

Saturday, February 6, 2016 was a great day at the beach for spending time with your furry friend – AND helping a great cause at the same time!  What more could anyone ask for?

The 2016 Chariots of Fur Beach Run & Festival was a huge success and St. Francis Animal Hospital would like to thank all the race participants, sponsors, supporters, vendors and volunteers whose involvement helped raise much needed funds for pets in need of medical care!!!

The event was a huge success with record attendance estimated at 1,300 people and 500 pups – a definite increase over last year.  Thanks to your support, St. Francis Animal Hospital raised nearly $34,000 to help family pets in need of medical care – and that is a 63% increase over the amount raised last year!  In addition to spending a windy, but beautiful day at the beach with their favorite furry friend, everyone enjoyed the amazing race packets filled with goodies, the wonderful silent auction, raffle prizes and great give-aways provided by sponsors and vendors, as well as the fun activities provided during the event.

We also want to congratulate all the 5K race winners!  To see the 2016 Chariots of Fur 5K race results: CLICK HERE
