Join us for our annual walk, rain or shine!

The Worcester County Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) private non-profit organization. They are a no-kill animal shelter, and operate mainly on donations. Boardwalkin’ for Pets is our largest fundraiser held every year. All money raised is used to care for the many dogs and cats that call the shelter home. In addition to providing everyday care, their animals also receive veterinary care, which can be quite expensive. Their animals receive loving care until they are adopted into suitable homes!

Prizes will be awarded to the walkers who raise the most money. Contests will be held for the smallest dog, largest dog, best dressed & best trick.

Ocean City, MD – Susan G. Komen Maryland told supporters to expect some changes at its annual fundraising walk next spring. Komen has been hard at work on the next evolution in the history of the Race for the Cure® series, and residents of the Eastern Shore will be among the first in the country to see it!  

Komen Maryland has selected to be one of twenty-six locations across the country to launch the new Susan G. Komen MORE THAN PINK WalkTM event, which along with a new name will include a fresh new look and experience focused on energizing the community around the lifesaving work Komen’s supporters make possible. This new approach is based on input from participants across the country, data from nine pilot events in 2018, and by Komen’s own observations from years as the leader in breast cancer walks.  

“Much of what you have come to love about the Race will continue with our new MORE THAN PINK Walk,” said Michael Jessup, executive director of Komen Maryland, “These changes are intended to increase people’s connection to our work beyond breast cancer awareness.  Together, we are more than pink–a community of people who want to do more for research, more for our communities, more for those among us who are living with breast cancer – including metastatic breast cancer – and more action to get us to cures.”

The biggest difference is that the MORE THAN PINK Walk will not have a separate timed run element, focusing instead on the vast majority of the event’s participants who walk, rather than run, during the event historically. This change will create a greater sense of community among participants and will provide a more personalized, emotional experience for all who attend. 

$20 registration fee through Walk Day! 

All survivors will receive a complimentary t-shirt and a surprise gift to use in the opening ceremonies. All general participants will receive a surprise gift to use in the open ceremonies but must fundraise $100 to receive a t-shirt.
