This is the Tour de Meow 5K - a charity run/walk to raise awareness in saving abandoned cats & kittens from euthanasia and finding them forever homes. Come out and join your fellow feline & animal welfare advocates as we run, walk, or pounce our way to the finish line. Participants will receive a 'Tour de Meow' T-shirt. There will be vendors and food as well as various activities. Also, you're more than welcome to bring your personal kitty - they just need to be on a harness. All proceeds from the event benefit MEOWco.org in supporting their Neonate Kitten Nursery, Adoption Programs, and many of their other life saving programs. Save the Kitties.
