Gumshoe detective walk extended through Aug. 20 because of concerns about heat, air quality

The annual Gumshoe 5K Walk, which raises money for three neighborhood nonprofits, has been extended by a week due to the expected heat wave and poor air quality.

The Gumshoe started last Friday and was scheduled to go through Aug. 13, but organizer Mike Veitenhans has added an extra week to allow people more time to complete the fun fundraiser without worrying about the heat.

Because of the extension, the group “Procrastishoe” has moved from Sunday, Aug. 13, to Aug. 20. Meet at Ken’s Market at 3 p.m.

Buy an entry form for $20 (or $15 each for two or more) at Ken’s Market, 7231 Greenwood Ave. N. (debit or credit card, cash or check payable to “PNA”); Phinney Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N. (credit card, cash or check); or Couth Buzzard Books, 8310 Greenwood Ave. N. (cash or check only). Return your completed form to any of the three purchase locations and be entered to win one of 10 $100 gift cards to local businesses.

All profits will be split equally between the Greenwood Senior Center, Greenwood Elementary School PTA and Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church Food Bank. The Gumshoe has raised more than $49,000 in 11 years for neighborhood non-profits.
