Sept. 30th is the date for the Athens Run for the Dogs. The event is a 5K race or a 1K run/walk with your dog. This is a fun event that benefits the nonprofit organization, Canine Companions for Independence. CCI provides trained assistance dogs for people with disabilities.
I had a great time participating in this in 2003 and 2004. It's a great chance to do some good for people with disabililities and have fun with your dogs.
