The Great Human Race is back! And so is Team PigDog.

Once again, Manbites Dog and Little Green Pig join forge an unholy alliance to support some great theater. And we need you to join the team.

The Great Human Race is an annual 5K competitive run/fun walk organized by The Volunteer Center of Durham to help local non-profits raise funds. It takes place Saturday morning March 24 at 8:30, starting near Sears Automotive at Northgate Mall (new location!). This year’s race goes through the historic and scenic Watts/Hillandale neighborhoods (new route!). Manbites Dog and Little Green Pig have joined forces as Team PigDog to participate in the event.
Get more info about the Great Human Race and Team PigDog here.

Last year, Manbites Dog and Little Green Pig raised over $9,000 in donations, plus an additional $5,000 in matching funds. We are determined to better that this time around. And to do that, we need the help of Team PigDog members. Team members enlist friends to sponsor their participation with donations. (Participation can be either competing in the run, walking the walk, or just showing up to cheer everyone on and grabbing some doughnuts.)

To become a team member, just go to the Team PigDog giving page and select “Create a Team Member Fundraising Page”.

Or to support the team, just select a team member to sponsor, enter your donation amount, and make a secure, tax deductible online donation.

It’s going to be a blast, so get your driving gloves on* and come out to support a great event. (Chicken masks and scorpion jackets are optional.)

(*Sadly, The Great Human Race is for actual human pedestrians only, so no automobiles, or dogs, or pigs, or real chickens allowed.)
