Paws Up For Amazon Packed Weekend!

Grab your leashes and treats, as Amazon Packed Weekend is happening from November 20th through November 22nd. There are tons of free giveaways and discounts being offered all across the DMV. I will send you the press release once confirmed on Tuesday, Nov. 17th that includes all the deals in our area.


About The Series:


The Pack, is a new global unscripted series that celebrates the unrivaled bond between dogs and their human companions. Hosted by gold medalist Lindsey Vonn and her canine co-host Lucy, the series features twelve teams of dogs and their humans on an epic adventure across multiple continents. The Amazon Original series The Pack will premiere on November 20th, on Amazon Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories.


At stake is a life-changing $750,000 for the winning duo and their charity, with $500,000 going to the winners and $250,000 for the animal charity of their choice. Additionally, The Pack donated $250,000 during filming to multiple charities and animal rescue organizations in each country, helping to pay it forward to dogs and those who love them around the world. To win the monetary prize for themselves and their charity, the teams will have to depend on their understanding of one another’s strengths and weaknesses and prove to have the strongest bond in the pack. In each locale, the human and dog duos will face fun and exciting challenges, designed in concert with a team of accredited veterinarians and certified dog experts that also accompany the group on their exciting journey, making sure it is a positive experience for everyone.


The Pack is produced by Amazon Studios and Renegade 83, an Entertainment One company. Jay Bienstock with Jay Renfroe and David Garfinkle of Renegade 83 serve as Executive Producers.

About The Stunt:


Packed Weekend runs November 20-22, 2020


The Pack Walk Challenge is a month-long virtual walking challenge hosted by MapMyFitness and MyFitness Pal apps. The event encourages viewers to get outside and walk their dogs in honor of three charitable organizations: American Heart Association, Best Friends Animal Society, and Environmental Defense Fund. This kicks off on Packed Weekend and runs from November 20 through December 19, 2020

What's Going On:


Get your feet and paws walking with the pack walk challenge. This is an opportunity to get moving with your family and fur babies. Starting Friday, November 20th, use MapMyFitness or MyFitnessPal apps from Under Armour to participate in "20 Workouts in 30 Days" or "30 Miles in 30 Days" to help us achieve the largest global pack walk ever while helping you and your pet stay healthy and strong! During the course, pet parents are encouraged to donate to worthy charitable organizations right from the app –The American Heart Association's Healthy Bond for Life, Environmental Defense Fund, and Best Friends Animal Society – to spotlight their own health, that of the planet, and to help every dog live their best life. And, to honor the spirit of charity at the heart of The Pack, Prime Video will generously match consumer donations up to $100,000 (split evenly among the charities) for a 24-hour window beginning November 21st. After completing the Challenge, eligible participants will have the chance to win a prize package, including roundtrip travel for four to anywhere Alaska Airlines flies. Fans everywhere can get pumped up with a playlist curated exclusively for the pack walk challenge from Amazon Music.


Arizona Cardinals' Kenyan Drake and Pittsburgh Steelers' Juju Smith-Schuster will be welcoming viewers into their lives and homes for an all-access, day-in-the-life look. In advance of the The Pack's premiere, we get a dog's view into the lives of these football favorites, shown via the athletes' social media. Athletes will also share the heartwarming stories of how they became a pet parent, the best places they've traveled together, their favorite pastimes, and the emotional connections they share... just like the stories featured in The Pack. Follow along on Instagram with Kenyan Drake, Maxine, and Tyson at @kdx32 and Juju Smith-Schuster and Boujee at @juju and @boujee.
