1st Ever Dawg Crawl

October 1st, 2013 | By Katie No Comments

Do you like to run, climb over and crawl under things?  Then you are going to love the first ever Dawg Crawl for kids.  At 10 a.m. Saturday, September 14, you can join hundreds of kids aged four to 13 years old at Athens Academy for a fun-filled morning.  All the kids will be divided into age groups and will race through a specially-designed obstacle course (several times)!  T-shirts, prizes, and awards will be presented, and everyone is guaranteed to have a great time.

Hosted by The Omni with support from Athens MOVE and Athens Academy, the Dawg Crawl has three primary goals:  (1) To offer a unique, exciting event where kids can run, climb, crawl, and have fun, (2) To raise awareness about childhood obesity and the physical and emotional health risks it can cause, and (3) To donate the proceeds from the Dawg Crawl to the Athens Regional Medical Center Diabetes Education Services to fight diabetes and other obesity-related medical conditions.
For more information about this event, go to www.theomniclubathens.com.
