Jane Lynch to Host 9th Annual Race for the Rescues

41NSlXphbtLGlee‘s fifth season may soon come to a close, but doggedly devoted fans of the hit Fox series are already looking forward to the fall, when actress Jane Lynch will reprise her roles both as Sue Sylvester and as host of the ninth annual Race for the Rescues.

Taking place October 18, 2014 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, the Emmy-winning star will once again cheer on runners who will make great strides in the ongoing efforts to help homeless pets in Southern California with every step they take along a 5k, 10k or 1k dog walk and kids fun run.

The happening with heart will also include:

  • adorable adoptables from area rescue groups who will shine in the spotlight during the Rockin’ Adoption Show and Awards presentation
  • celebrity guests
  • a silent auction
  • a DJ dance
  • pet psychics
  • pet-related vendors
  • food trucks

…and much more!

Presented by the no-kill non-profit organization The Rescue Train, proceeds from the event will benefit Angel City Pit Bulls, A Purposeful Rescue, Cat Posse, Downtown Dog Rescue, Heaven on Earth Animal Society, Molly’s Mutts & Meows, Sante D’Or Foundation, The Rescue Train, United Pegasus Foundation and What’s Up Dog LA.

Admission: Free (There is a registration fee to participate in the race.)

When: October 18, 2014 from 7 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Where: The Rose Bowl Area H in Pasadena, California
