FANCY a night on the town wearing your best pink-and-black outfit, or are you more the outdoor type, ready to strap on your running shoes and drag the kids around the block a few times before breakfast?
If wining and dining is more your scene, L&G Steppers has just the event for you on Friday with an evening of music, drink specials and free food all in the cause Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
So dress up and head out to Mr Calvin’s Club at 6022 Martin Luther King Avenue in Hitchcock.
But, if lung-busting exercise is more likely to grab your bag, gather up your children for a trip to Moody Gardens on Saturday for D’Feet Breast Cancer’s annual run-and-walk fundraiser, also in aid of helping victims of the disease.
The event includes 5K and 10K runs, a 5K walk and a 1K kids’ event.
The gun will fire to start the first event at 7:00am but don’t worry if you’re not able to rise at dawn after stepping out the night before – the program is a staggered affair (no pun intended), with the events beginning at intervals.
No doubt they’ll let you know your start time when you sign up.
