Who will run/walk 100K or 100 Miles to honor Betty almost reaching 100 years??? Betty was a major animal activist, s0 at least 15% of every registration to Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary in Georgia. Their mission is three-fold:
  • To provide a forever home for injured, abused, and orphaned animals.
  • To provide awareness through our education programs that emphasize all living things have value no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. When we as a society can recognize this fact, we will begin to win the battles for conservation and preservation.
