is once again sponsoring this year's "COUCH or 5K RUN" which is a fundraiser for two benefits.


One of the benefits will be for "The Woodlands" which is a National Historic Landmark which acts as a cemetery as well as a vibrant community space.

The second benefit will be for "Misfit Manor" which is a local nonprofit that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes at-risk animals, provides refuge to those that cannot be adopted out and reduces the number of owner-surrenders by helping people care for their companion animals

Funds will also maintain the Philadelphia Pet Pantry for the homeless that was established by proceeds from last year's run.


Some combination of prizes/medals at the Couch or 5K will be given to the top three adults (non-binary, female and male), a human child and dog finishers. Our team members are encouraged to bring non-perishable dog/cat items for the Philadelphia Pet Pantry, with each donation scoring the donor a raffle ticket and a chance to win additional prizes courtesy of the Couch or 5K event.

Advance race registration is $35 (in addition to coffee and donuts, you receive a special Couch or 5K race day shirt and a runner's membership to The Woodlands). Not a runner? No problem! You can still donate $20 to the cause and partake in the snacking, join the raffle, and cheer on the runners.

Whether you can or can't make it to the 2nd annual Couch or 5K you still have an opportunity to contribute to this great cause.


You can also support the team by providing a donation in which the proceeds will go

to the Couch or 5K fundraising event to help benefit The Woodlands & Misfit Manor


You can donate as low as $5.00.


However, if you donate up to $20.00 or more you will receive our official TEAM P.E.T. CORE t-shirt (NOTE: Only one shirt per donation)

Let's work together to bring happiness to those in need.
