Grab those leashes and help the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA) raise much needed funds to provide comfort and care to thousands of animals each year. Sign up now and raise funds before you walk. Then, on September 21, meet with fellow fundraisers at Transit Pier for a mile long walk through the Wharf. Registered walkers will receive a t-shirt and goodie bag at the event and some of DC’s best pet vendors will be onsite. Stay after the walk for the Wiener 500 and enjoy DC’s funniest Oktoberfest! Featuring the Dachshund dash for charity to benefit HRA, Oktoberfest beer, a stein hoisting contest and more.

Plus, our water taxi might just be the fastest way to get to Georgetown, Old Town Alexandria, or National Harbor.
