Benefit Run for Canine Companions for Independence

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.

Directions to Sandy Creek Park in Athens, GA.

Do you get a shirt?

You get a shirt and a goodie bag. But the goodies are mostly for your furry friend.

It should be beautiful tommorow in Athens. The UGA game is in Oxford (one of my favorite places) and doesn't start until 9 pm CST.
