The final race in the 2012 Summer Series is just around the corner. The CATnip 5K is this coming Saturday evening, July 28th. This is a great race, organized in part by Lizards. For both the men and women, spots in the top ten for the summer series overall standings are at stake.
The CATnip 5K is a benefit run/walk for one of the best organizations around: The Cat Adoption Team (CAT). CAT is a no kill shelter in Sherwood, OR. Walking inside their cat shelter, as my husband and I did in February 2008, can be an overwhelming experience. There are hundreds of animals there on any one day, though this is only a small snap shot of the full picture. In 2011 CAT adopted out 2400 cats. It’s a huge job and requires financial support. Show up and race and help make sure this important work can continue.
