Wag And Walk Benefit Hike Set For Saturday, July 8

 

June 29, 2017



The firstever Wag and Walk hosted by Carolina Mountain Land Conser-vancy (CMLC) and the Blue Ridge Humane Society (BRHS) will take place on Saturday, July 8, at 11 a.m. The 2.5-mile walk will benefit both organizations and help to further their combined efforts to foster a community based on respect, interconnectedness and compassion.

CMLC’s mission is to foster a deep connection to the lands of Western North Carolina by protecting places with strong natural heritage and community value. Part of this mission is accomplished by protecting and building public access trails in this area. These trails have become an integral part of the Humane Society’s Tails to Trails program which encourages volunteers to take adoptable dogs out on local trails for a hike. It is through the Tails to Trails program that CMLC and BRHS first recognized the many commonalities between their organizations.


The Wag and Walk benefit hike is an opportunity for both organizations to come together to help build a support base for their common values. The walk will take place right in the heart of Hendersonville, starting at Patton Park. The walk follows the Oklawaha Greenway to Martin Luther King Park where there will be a quick water break before circling back to Patton Park.

Registration for the event is $25 and includes an event T-shirt. There is no registration cut off and new entries will be accepted on the day of the event at the registration booth in the Patton Park Pavilion. To register, visit the Calendar of Events on http://www.blueridgehumane.org.
