April 11, 1997|By Christy Kruhm | Christy Kruhm,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

MOUNT AIRY NET organizers are hoping that the Tony Green Memorial Walk/Run is a repeat of last year's successful inaugural event.

The fund-raiser is set to begin at 9: 05 a.m. tomorrow at Watkins Park, Route 27, Mount Airy. Participants can begin to register at 8 a.m. The course will follow the newly paved one-mile Richard A. Wilson Trail around the park.

Mount Airy NET Secretary and committee Chairwoman Althea Miller estimated last year's attendance at 70, with $600 raised for Mount Airy NET.

NET is a nonprofit organization that provides support to those in need and emergency assistance obtaining food, clothing, shelter and other essentials.

The event honors the memory of Tony Green, who was active in the community and who served as vice president of the board of directors of NET.

Registration fees are $3 for students, $7 for adults and $15 for families. A drawing will be held for more than 100 prizes donated by local businesses.

Information: 301-829-1775, 301-829-9150 or 301-831-9561.
