ConnectSavannah Import Default Image

The Humane Society for Greater Savannah is among those local groups benefiting from the 2013 Critz Tybee Run Fest. At its annual “Giving Back to the Community” reception on September 18, the Savannah Foundation, on behalf of the Critz Tybee Run Fest, distributed $70,000 from the Run Fest to local organizations dedicated to serving youth and education.

“This grant will allow us to offer training to more new adopters to help them become better, more responsible pet parents. We also plan to increase educational opportunities for our volunteers, many of whom are high school students.” said Lynn Gensamer, Executive Director of HSGS. “We are very grateful to the Critz family for their generosity.”

During the 2014 race, the Humane Society will be sponsoring a “Race Within A Race.” Participants will be able to register for any or all races as a “Pet Pal.” Proceeds from the race registration fees of all Pet Pals will be donated to HSGS.

Online registration for the January 31-February 1 events are open on at
