There are two events on Saturday, September 20, 2014. The first is Bark for Life Canton. The American Cancer Society sponsors it and it is a noncompetitive walk event for dogs and their owners to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer. Go walk for a great cause! The other event the 10th annual Hot Lips Hustle 5K in Marietta. This fast, flat, certified 5K race in Marietta is fun for the whole family (and dogs, too)! Chip timing, live DJ, trophies in 14 age groups, prize giveaways and great t-shirts define the Hot Lips as the must-run race of the fall. Entries will be capped at 500 participants for this celebratory event, so register now! Families, dogs, runners and all walkers are welcome. All dog participants receive special collar tags and the top three dog finishers receive special awards. This race was founded by a Marietta girl born with cleft palate who wanted to give back to needy families with children who cannot afford treatment for this crippling birth defect. Since inception, the Hot Lips Hustle has changed over 200 children’s lives through The Smile Train. People are encouraged to let their dogs participate for an additional $5 per dog. Both of these activities are benefiting great causes!
