Saturday, May 31st, you can chase a cougar in Lester Park...as part of the 6th Annual Congdon Cougar Chase!

Congdon Cougar Chase Committee members Dalerie Lieberz and Kristy McGiffert, along with the 'Congdon Cougar' came on the show this morning.

Dalerie and Kristy tell us that on Saturday, there will be 5K, 10K, 1K and 0.5K runs.  The 1K and 0.5K are recommended for the youngest of us.  The 10K is recommended for those older than elementary school age. There are also no walkers allowed for the 10K run.

This is a fundraiser for the school, so all proceeds will support kids at Congdon Elementary School.
