5K run/walk fundraising event in honor and memory of Joshua Heinz.  Run or walk WITH your dog on the beach!

One of Josh's passions was working with animals, especially his dog Jackson.  Josh rescued Jackson from a Gainesville shelter as a puppy and trained him to be a service animal.  Josh and Jackson spent many hours together at Paws Park and volunteering at the Jacksonville Humane Society.  Josh gladly volunteered his time and services to help dog owners train their pets to become service animals.

Funds raised from the Josh's Run for Paws event will be used to install benches, shelters, agility courses, and AstroTurf at Paws Park in Jacksonville Beach.
