With a name like Hopalong which represents the first animal (and 3 legged) saved by Helen Hill 20 years ago that started our organization, it is only natural to partner with to put on an amazing and fun filled event called a skip-along!

What on earth is iSkip you ask?! It’s a fantastic movement founded in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1999 that promotes the benefits of skipping for fun and fitness. The skipping movement has been featured in USA Today, Time, People, and Newsweek magazines, and we are excited to help them celebrate their 15th Anniversary while raising funds for Hopalong & Second Chance Animal Rescue. Skipping will be encouraged but not required (enthusiastic walkers are welcome too) at this fun fundraising event along San Francisco’s Embarcadero. All money raised goes directly to us, so we are thrilled for this unique adventure and opportunity! Grab everyone you know, put on your sneaks, bring your well behaved dog if you like and come celebrate with us!

Skipping is something that almost everyone did as children, but far too often lose touch with as an adult. Not only does it have all the benefits of a good workout…it generates a tremendous amount of positive energy…and is a lot of FUN too!

This event is appropriate for all ages and fitness levels (and well behaved dogs). Fear not if you don’t like to skip because enthusiastic walkers are more than welcome too! There will be designated skipping zones marked along the 1.5 mile route where short bursts of skipping are encouraged, but not required. Of course, those who are seeking more of a physical challenge, will also have the option of skipping the entire distance.

Bright colors, tutus, wings, and other fun clothing and accessories are strongly encouraged!
