BULLY PAWS 5K WALK...

On September 30th GWCS students and faculty will be taking part in a 5K fundraiser walk that will benefit Bully Paws, a Pit Bull rescue group. However, SPACE IS LIMITED! Register as soon as possible.

Bully Paws is a great animal rescue group that saves dogs from animal shelters and finds them loving homes. They have over 100 dogs and save hundreds of dogs from being euthanized every year.

Students who participate will earn three hours of community service for participating and onehour for each family member or friend they bring with them to the walk. (Remember you need at least 30 community service to fulfill your requirement!)

Email Mr. Connelly to let him know you've registered and how many people you will be bringing. All the information you need can be found on the Bully Paws Website. Click the link to register!

Dogs must be accompanied and handled by a registered participant who is at least 18 years old. No retractable leashes and dogs must be well behaved.  Bringing a dog is optional but only recommended if your dog is very well behaved and socialized.

The walk begins at 8:00 am.  Arrive early to check-in.
