The SueB Shuffle

The second annual Community Cares 5K, a 5-kilometer running race and 1-mile fun run, will be held Saturday at the Durango Community Recreation Center amphitheater.
The 1-mile run begins at 10 a.m. with the 5-mile to follow at 10:45. Registration is from 8:30 to 9:45 a.m. in the Windom Room at the rec center.
Entry is free, but a suggested $10 donation will benefit the family of SueB Earl, a mother of two who is battling leukemia. The event this year is being called the SueB Shuffle.
The course follows the Animas River Trail, returning to the amphitheater.
