The 11th Annual Humane Race
was Saturday, May 4th, 2013
We don’t have the tally on participants and dogs as of yet, but it was a fantastic turnout on a glorious, cloudless day in Williamstown.
Our heartfelt thanks to the new Race Directors, Christa Abel and Dawn Catelotti, the proprietors of Bark N’ Cat in North Adams, MA (www.barkncat.com) and their outstanding team of volunteers.
And another huge Thank-You to Julia Matejcek, our Williams College student liason and volunteer wrangler. Thanks to all of our volunteers–we simply could not do this without you.
The first five photo albums are now online thanks to volunteer photographers Lily and Jack Cattelotti, Williams student Laura Berman, race supporter Leslie Morgenthal, and outgoing Race Director Alix Cabral as well as iBerkshires.com.
You could be in these photos, so check ‘em out! More photos coming soon!
iBerkshires has a nice photo album of The Humane Race online. Thanks, guys!
We have another great album on-line thanks to Race Volunteer Wendy DeSanty. Thanks Wendy!
The Humane Race
The Humane Race is a 5K fun run and “Dog Jog” (you are welcome to run with or without a dog) to benefit The Berkshire Humane Society.
The race takes place in Williamstown, MA, in the northwest corner of The Berkshires.
And as much as dogs really dig raising money for the Humane Race, kids love it too!
The Humane Race is a real family affair, with students of all ages getting involved by baking and selling dog biscuits, designing the T-shirts, finding sponsors, getting pledges, setting up the race course, and of course, volunteering by the dozens on race day! Helping animals is a natural for kids, and the homeless animals of Berkshire County certainly shout out their thanks with big, wet kisses and lots of exuberant tail wagging!
