Howard County Road Kill running club will be taking on Scenic Mountain and encouraging other residents to accompany them in support of raising awareness about area homeless veterans.
The club, which was founded in 2009, is hosting a 5k walk/run at Big Spring State Park at 9 a.m. Nov. 19. Funds raised through the effort will be used to support veterans through the VA Medical Center and the Disabled American Veterans in Big Spring, according to Otis Franklin, club member. The support will come through help for shelter, food, clothing, employment and dependency treatment.
The contest is ended, but organizers of the chamber's â€śthink positiveâ€ť campaign are hopeful the theme will carry on.
Focus on the Positive campaign â€” sponsored by the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce â€” concluded Oct. 28 and 10 winners were named Oct. 31.
Area residents were asked to create and submit a top 10 list of positive things about Howard County, Big Spring, Coahoma and Forsan and submit it to the chamber. The lists were combined into one list and at random 10 participants were awarded prizes from area business sponsors.
