Going for a run or walk? Well, there’s plenty of shelter dogs who’d love to go with. Team Spiridon and other partners have teamed up to encourage runners (and walkers) to get shelter dogs (and cats, if you really think you can make that work out…) out to share some fresh air and exercise. The result: better-adjusted, healthier, and therefore, more adoptable dogs. And people. So, get off your butt, and run a mutt!

We Need YOU: Austin Marathon Water (Beer) Stop!

February 14, 2016, 7:00am

Show some extra love on Valentine's Day by helping out runners from around the world, and pets right here in Austin! Right now, with matching from the Moody Foundation, we've raised about $4,000 for each of four great organizations - Austin Pets Alive!, Emancipet, Friends of AAC, and Love-a-Bull. Now, we really need your help, staffing a water stop on the marathon course, at mile 22. We try to make it a lot of fun (and I'm pretty sure we succeed at that). The details: • February 14, 7am-2pm, though we will likely wrap up a little easier than that. • Water stop location is at 5213 Ave. G - the intersection of 53rd and Avenue G, in the Salon Sary parking lot. • We'll provide food and drink (even some adult beverages). • We need to know we'll have the whole shift covered, but if people can't commit to the entire time, that is OK. • Kids are welcome, if they can help and are under control. • You do not have to have gone through RuffTail Runners training to participate. Volunteers must register at: cloud.emos1.com/austin/volunteer/RegisterVolunteer.aspx?code=spiridon&eid=1029&JScript=1 You'll be out there working with our beneficiary organizations - it's great to get all the different orgs working together on one team, and fun to be a part of it!
