2024 Night Owl

Weather was perfect and we had record in-person turnout in 2024, with a sellout crowd raising more than $16,000 for AWARE's wild patients. The Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area served as title sponsor for the third time.

2023 Night Owl

Despite thunderstorms in the forecast, the clouds parted and the sun shone on a wonderful Night Owl at Panola Mountain! With more than 200 folks participating and again over $10,000 in money to pay for food, medicine, and care for wildlife, the event was a tremendous success and pleasure for all involved. AWARE's friends at the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area returned as the title sponsor.

2022 Night Owl

People participated both in-person and virtually, again raising more than $10,000 to support rehabilitation of injured and orphaned patients. It was a cool and overcast afternoon at Panola Mountain, perfect for a run. The Rebecca Kay Sapp Law Firm returned as the title sponsor.

2021 Night Owl

Nobody imagined a second consecutive year of covid, but the AWARE community rose to the challenge again, raising more than $10,000 to support our wild patients. The Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance was the title sponsor. Results and pictures below!

2020 Night Owl

We never would have chosen the circumstances, but in the end, a "virtual" Night Owl allowed an incredible record crowd of 321 participants to run, jog, and walk while maintaining social distancing to fight the coronavirus. The pictures you all sent in brought tears to our eyes, and we couldn't be prouder. 2020 also brought the Night Owl's first title sponsor, so thank you to the Rebecca Kay Sapp Law Firm for making it all possible!
