By Allison Glatsky
Grab your furry friend this Sunday and head on out Mingo Creek County Park for the 3rd annual Paws and Purrs 5k Run & Fun walk. The walk will take place on the 11th from 7:30am until 12:00pm. It’s hosted by the Washington Area Humane Society and tickets can be purchased for $25.00 which will go to finding shelter for the homeless dogs and cats of Washington County.
There will be a fun walk, and a timed run, so take your pick on how serious you want to be about this and get your pooch in shape. If you’re really on top of the game, you even have the chance of winning a medal. All fabulous are welcome to participate as long as you bring along proof of rabies vaccination. Registration for humans and furry friends alike begins at 7:30am on Sunday morning.
The Run & Walk will also feature vendors, games, and raffles so if you don’t win the race, you could be a winner in the 50/50.
