I had SO planned to run this race tomorrow. Unfortunately, I'm still battling this nasty case of bronchitis, and I'll never have enough air to do it. I DO encourage anyone that is close enough to run this race or do the fun walk. It is for a VERY worthy cause.
The Bedford County Spay/Neuter Committee is holding Paws for a Cause, a 5K Run and Fun Walk, on February 21, 2008 with proceeds going toward the building of a spay/neuter clinic in Bedford County.
Special guests at this years Paws for a Cause are Nan Kelley, host of Great American Country's top 20 Countdown and Live at the Opry and her husband Charlie Kelley, guitarist and record producer, whose album by his group "The Boxhounds" was nominated for a Grammy this year will be kicking off the 5K Run and 1 mile Fun Run to benefit the spay/neuter clinic. Also, Charlie will be selling his CD and giving the proceeds to the committee.
You can google Nan Kelley to get more information about her. She is a former Miss Mississippi and you can see Charlie at www.theboxhounds.com.
