The sixth annual Community Cares 5K – this year called “Trekkin’ for Trish” – will be held Saturday at the Durango Community Recreation Center. The benefactor is Trish Walker, who has been battling brain cancer. Registration is 8:30-9:45 a.m. at the rec center’s Windom Room. The event is free, but there is a suggested donation of $10. Proceeds go directly to the Walker family. The first 200 participants receive a T-shirt. A 1-mile fun walk/run begins at 10 a.m. and a 5-kilometer walk/run begins at 10:45 a.m. Both will be on the Animas River Trail.
For more information, contact event director Ken Flint at 903-2525.
