Boxer Luv Rescue Run

Don’t miss the 9th annual Boxer Luv Rescue Run held at Kiwanis Park in Tempe. This is a super fun family friendly event held each year for a great cause.

January 20, 2024!

Boxer Luv Rescue Run 2024


The Boxer Luv Rescue Run is near and dear to our hearts as we’ve fostered several dogs with Boxer Luv, and we currently have two boxers that came from the rescue.

Meet Gunner! He is one of our awesome rescue dogs. 🙂 Yes, he and his brother will be joining us, too!

He’s a Gooood Boy!

For 2024, the run will be held on January 20th at 8am.
Choose between the 10k walk/run or the 5k walk/run. They even have a 1 mile fun run/walk to choose from.

Kiwanis Park is located at 101 W Baseline Road, Tempe, AZ 85283. You’ll enter the park at Ash Avenue, which is just west of Mill Avenue and Baseline.
