Kinda corny I know, but two reasons for the title.

One to tell you about the neat experience we had at the Carolina Raptor Center last Saturday. Visit them at http://www.carolinaraptorcenter.org/ We got to see many birds, including a beautiful redtailed hawk, bald eagles, and this barred owl named Omar. They get about 700 birds of prey per year and release almost 2/3 back to the wild. The ones that don’t get released are unable to support themselves in the wild usually due to injury. One of the most common injuries is blindness due to trauma. See, the birds complete and utter focus on it’s prey makes it oblivious to tree branches, power lines and even cars. We saw some magnificent birds, and the boys enjoyed the gift shop!!!!

Now, the second reason for the corny intro is that we need Sponsors for ourboys 5k on June 7th. If you know someone or some company who may be interested in sponsorship for our event please email us at contactus@ourboysjourney.com or at chawk328@ctc.net. We will have online registration available shortly for runners.
Save the date and please pass on this information to anyone that may be interested in running, walking or volunteering. Also if you have a community newsletter that you could run a story in we would love the exposure.
