Skechers LA Marathon – February 14, 2016

Countless hours spent setting up for our adoption events,  transporting them to adoptions and veterinary appointments, and training, training and more training. There’s nothing we won’t do for our doggies! So, running or walking 26.2 miles for Forte Animal Rescue is no big deal, right? Lucky for you it’s a very achievable goal and one that will go a long way for Forte!

Forte Animal Rescue is once again an official charity of the Skechers Los Angeles Marathon. The 2016 Skechers LA Marathon will take place on Sunday, February 14th, 2016. This year’s marathon is especially significant because it follows the U.S. Olympic trials taking place on Saturday, February 13th, 2016. The energy and support surrounding this year’s event is expected to be at an incredible high, and it’s bound to be a marathon year to remember!

Forte is seeking walkers and runners to join its marathon team. Runners will receive mentorship and help as they craft their training program, access to group runs, and a Forte marathon team tee shirt, as well as karma points for raising much needed funds for our pooches.

Along with runners, Forte is also accepting donations to support our marathon team. Our goal is to raise $15,000 for our rescue dogs with this year’s marathon fundraiser, which is a completely achievable goal!

If you’re considering running or walking the marathon this year, please email for more information on how to join the marathon team and get involved!
