Ninety runners recently participated in the Big Butts Trail Race organized by Mississippi Ultra and Trail Society (MUTS). The participants ran on trails all day for distances of 100k or 50k at Buddy Butts Park and Mississippi College Choctaw Trails. The event raised $1,000 and more than 20 bags of pet food for the volunteer organization Jackson Friends of the Animal Shelter. This group serves the pets at the City of Jackson Animal Shelter by improving their quality of life while at the shelter by supplying medical care, exercising them, and helping them find their forever homes. Shown at the check presentation are (from left) Ethan Mayeu, Josh Gilmer, Lyn Crawford, Helen Summerford, Belmont Boswell, Jenny Hong and Jimmy Giles.
