Hitchhikers: 1 elderly Greyhound, Grant. Rescued from animal shelter.

Starting point: Sarasota FL

Destination: Raleigh NC

Target date: August 7-9

Please see the suggested route table below the map. If you can take a leg (or two), please email Kate. The route that fills up first will be the route we use.

NOTE: If you contacted me about participating in this run last weekend, and are still available, please contact me again to confirm.

If you can drive farther than the distance indicated in one leg, please specify how far you can go. Please keep in mind that these are "suggested" routes, and changes can be made to accomodate the volunteers who come forward. The tables will be kept updated as legs are filled or changed. As legs are filled I encourage volunteers to contact each other to arrange meeting points and times, and make sure you notify me of your plans.

NOTE: if, for whatever reason, you prefer not to have your email address linked on these tables, or if you would rather not even have your name posted, please let me know and I will simply insert "covered" in the appropriate box. The idea here is simply to make it easier for connecting legs to contact each other about meeting places and times.

NOTE - Email addresses of runners have been removed. If you need the address of one of your contacts, email me and I'll send it to you.
