Our fifth event of 2018 is celebrating one of the best Doctor Who episodes EVER! If you haven't watched the sixth season (or at least the first seven episodes) of "New Who"...you need to get caught up in a hurry because there are going to be some SPOILERS with this event!
All participants will get this amazing 3" medal that looks just like the box that Dorium Maldovar's head ended up in (I told you...SPOILERS!)...the front slides open to reveal a mirror...now YOU are a Headless Monk! Of course, it comes with the custom satin ribbon (featuring the "Doctor's first stars") and the always popular custom digital bib.
"Demons run when a good man goes to war...but what happens when they come home?" Whovian Running Club is honored to announce that our charity partner for this event is Patriot PAWS. This incredible multi-faceted program serves numerous populations. The dogs go through various stages of training with professional dog trainers at every step. Those stages of training include working with prison inmates at three Texas correctional facilities (which teaches the inmates an extremely valuable skill that significantly lowers recidivism), and the students at Texas A&M and the Univ. of North Texas, where the dogs learn critical social skills. The end result is a highly trained service dog that is given at no cost to a disabled veteran. Our goal for this event is to provide critical funds for Patriot PAWS' new Veteran's House facility for visiting veterans AND WRC will get the honor of naming one of the dogs (is there a more appropriate name than Melody?)!
