A lot of my friends have started running 5Ks. It’s not only a post-graduate trend, it seems, but a way to have some healthy & organized fun. There are races all over Boston, and while I’m not a particularly good runner myself, I’ve often considered joining in.
But while some races throw paint at you, or throw mud at you, or play music at you, or let you dress up in ridiculous costumes, there are also races that are for a good cause, and one of the best causes I can think of: PUPPIES!
Here is one such upcoming event for runners and animal-lovers in the Boston area:
GREAT DOG RESCUE OF NEW ENGLAND 1st Annual 5K
SUNDAY, APRIL 21, 2013
9:00 AM (race begins 10:00AM)
Tewksbury Memorial High School
“Come run or walk with your dogs and help raise money for GDRNE! We have a great day planned with the race, games for kids, puppies available for adoption, face painting and temporary tattoos, raffle and more! Registration is only $30 and if you register by April 5th you get an event t-shirt!”
A little self-promotion: I will be volunteering at this event, so be sure to say “hi” by the puppies and adoptable dogs!
