Canine Classic 5K Road Race Benefits Humane Society of West Alabama

Canine Classic 5K Road Race Benefits Humane Society of West Alabama Brenda Thomas

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.”

Freeman said the HSWA usually has about 75 animals in their care.

“The cost to get these animals properly vetted and ready for adoption, plus caring for them while waiting for them to be adopted, runs about $250 each. So the majority of all the funds we raise go straight to our medical bills.”

The 5K road race (for humans only) will start at 8:00 a.m. and is part of the Tuscaloosa Track Club Grand Prix of West Alabama. Registration starts at 7:00 a.m. and the cost is $20 (if postmarked by Sept. 19) and $25 on the day of the race.  

The race course is a flat, fast certified course. The first 150 registrants will receive a t-shirt on the day of the race and all entrants will be entered into a drawing for door prizes. Sport drinks, food, fruit and water will be available and walkers are welcomed. Awards will be given out to standard age groups. 

Participants can download a registration form from either TuscaloosaTrackClub.com or HumaneSocietyofWA.org
