SHELBY TOWNSHIP — The ninth anniversary of The Gopher Gold Run for Special Olympics is scheduled to take place July 20 at River Bends Park in Shelby Township.

The money raised helps send kids to the state meet, held at Central Michigan University.

Last year, more than $10,000 was raised to help children from Oakland and Macomb counties, with approximately 600 runners/walkers participating.
