While we wait for the green light to be able to host large community events safely in Midland (or anywhere!) once again, we've decided to host an exciting new event, Hot Dog Run - Virtual Edition !
WHAT IN THE WORLD IS A VIRTUAL RUN?
It's just like a regular run, the only difference is that on race day,youwill be the only one at the starting line!
It's just as fun, just as challenging, and, most importantly, it's a SAFER way to flex your racing muscles!
Join the Virtual Hot Dog Run in the name of fun & fitness -- while helping to raise much-needed funds for the MHC Adoption Center. Homeless cats & dogs have not stopped coming in and out of the Center and we couldreallyuse all the help we can get!
We encourage you to find safe ways to get involved and get active -- it is more important than ever to take care of our health and wellness.
