Oakland “Run for It”

If you enjoy bringing your furry friends to the Oakland Dog Park, this is your opportunity to help us keep our Dog Park clean and beautiful.

The Clean and Green Team, one of several revitalization teams formed in 2016 to assist with revitalization projects for Oakland, is entering the Tucker Community Foundation Run For It event again this year. This is an annual event and cash awards are given out to non-profit organizations in Garrett, Preston and several other counties. Last year the team was awarded prize money which was applied to the purchase of flowers for the planters located throughout Oakland.  This year the Clean & Green Team is entering with the purpose of using their cash award to help refresh the landscaping and maintain the Oakland Dog Park.

You can help by entering this virtual race and either joining or supporting the team.  It is very easy.  This is a virtual race and the entry fee is only $10.00.  Details about the RUN FOR IT event can be found at:  tuckerfoundation.net/run.  Registration can be done on-line or paper race applications can be picked up at the dog park.  Please be sure to identify your team, as Clean and Green Team, Oakland Heritage Community Foundation.  The actual race date is Saturday, Sept. 26, at Davis, WV.  But this is a virtual event and you can walk, run, bike, or just play with your dog anywhere.  Registration applications and race fee are due by Sunday, September 20, 2020.
