Help feed Mebane’s animals while you run! Mebane on the Move is partnering with Friends of Mebane’s Animals (FoMA) to hold a pet food drive on race day.

FoMA is a local organization dedicated to helping pet owners avoid pet surrender by providing food and vet care. You can help by bringing a pet food donation of any kind on race day.
Donation bins will be at the registration table on race morning. The registration table will be located in the public parking lot on Clay street in between dollar general and the former downtown drug store.
FoMA offers a free pet food distribution every other month. Details of the next distribution day will be available at the race, as well as applications to become a recipient of FoMA’s benefits and information on volunteering.

All proceeds from the race go to benefit the Mebane on the Move initiatives, so bring your friends and get your move on!
