AWF Run to Rescue 5k Walk/Run - Saturday June 15, 2013
Join us for our first ever 5k Walk/Run! The event will be held in conjunction with the 178th Olin Jamboree in none other than Olin Iowa! Registration begins at 7:00 AM and the race begins at 8:00 AM at the trailhead of the Grant Wood Trail in Olin on Resident Street. If you’d rather register now instead of the day of the event or donate, you can go to https://secure.getmeregistered.com/get_information.php?event_id=8528. If you’d rather go about it the old fashioned way, you can click here to print the form, fill it out, make out the check, and mail them via the US Mail to the person listed! Your generous participation and contributions will assist the Animal Welfare Foundation of Iowa in caring for homeless animals in Jones County and building an animal shelter in Monticello, Iowa. Participants are welcome to enter with or without a dog. If you will be bringing your dog, please also bring a copy of the rabies certificate to the event. All participants will be entered into a random prize drawing. Also be sure to stop by our Bake Sale and Pet Microchipping booth at Community Park after the parade! Cllick here to view the flyer.
AWF has an exciting new fundraiser; Rada Cutlery. This Iowa based company has been in business since 1948, their knives come with a lifetime guarantee, and all of their products are made in the USA. Actually they are made right here in Waverly Iowa! In addition to knives, they have utensils, cookbooks, stoneware, candles, dips, cheese balls, pound cakes, sauces, soup mixes, and no-bake cheesecakes. 40% of the proceeds will go directly to AWF!
