The 14th Annual Canine Classic 5K road race to benefit the Humane Society of West Alabama will be held Saturday, Sept. 24, at Kentuck Park in Northport.
“This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and we so appreciate all the support from our local businesses as sponsors, and the community, for turning up to run or walk,” said Betty Freeman, race director and HSWA board member. “All proceeds go directly to the welfare of all the animals in our care and to helping more in the Tuscaloosa community.”
Morning hassles...nagging, prodding, lost socks, and spilled milk...all as we rush out the door to start our day. You don’t have to feel rushed and irritated; get in control! With a little problem solving and advanced planning, morning routines can become just the right start for a great day!
Enjoy your week, T-Town. And ROLL TIDE!
