Walk for the Animals - Auggie's 5K

Get some exercise and help the Ohio Valley’s homeless pets at the same time!

When & Where

The annual "Auggie’s 5K Run & Walk" event is held in Wheeling, WV on a “flat, fast, USATF-certified course run on Wheeling's Heritage Trail along the beautiful Ohio River, beginning and ending at Warwood Middle School (Viking Drive & Richland Ave.).” There is a registration fee ($18.00 ahead of time, $20.00 at the gate), but it goes to a good cause—The Ohio County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

This year's Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, October 13, 2012, starting at 9:00 AM.

Details

You can choose to run or walk, children are welcome, as are dogs! There will be prizes for the top runners and walkers, as well as raffles, door prizes, a DJ, and free jackets guaranteed to the first 200 pre-registrants.

Who was Auggie?

Auggie was a beautiful black cat who was Tom Rownd's (race director) faithful companion for seven years. Auggie's early departure from this world inspired Tom to establish this race in 1999 as a fundraiser for the Ohio County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and to remember him by.
