Surge and the The LandTrust for Central North Carolina plan a Paws in the Park community event to raise funds for a no-kill animal sanctuary in Rowan County.
The event is scheduled for Sept. 15, on a portion of the Salisbury Greenway, with registration at Knox Middle School. Check-in is at 9 a.m. and a walk starts at 10 a.m.
The entry fee for adults is $15 and includes a T-shirt. Children’s T-shirts are $5.
Money raised will also help support public outreach and conservation education initiatives of the LandTrust (including classroom presentations and wildlife education hikes) and the Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary, a new animal rescue group formed to promote a no-kill animal shelter.Sponsorship opportunities for the event are available. Currently, Miller Davis is an event sponsor.
Surge, Rowan County’s young professionals organization, is in its third year and currently has about 30 members. E-mail Surge-Salisbury@Yahoo.com for more information about the organization.
