UPCOMING RUN/WALK RACES IN AND THROUGH OLD LAS PALMAS
Happy Holidays to all of you! I want to thank you all in advance for allowing us to use your beautiful neighborhood as the venue of two upcoming races that will raise money for very worthy organizations. I, along with my good friend, Michele Mician, run your neighborhood 5 days a week and have dubbed ourselves your personal early hours security crew. We marvel at your beautiful homes and lovely landscaping and the sense of pride that your neighborhood exudes.
Let me share with you some information about the races and the charities they support.
3rd Annual SANTA PAWS 5K
Saturday, December 20th, 2014 9AM Start
Benefits: GUIDE DOGS OF THE DESERT
If you do not plan to participate (registration deadline is Dec. 15), but would like to be a part of the holiday fun, pull up a lawn chair along the route and cheer on our runners and walkers, all in Santa outfits! I know they will appreciate your encouragement.
Inaugural P.S. Film Festival RED CARPET RUN 5K and 10K
Saturday, January 3, 2015 8AM Start
Benefits: The Palm Springs International Film Festival Student Film Maker's Scholarship Fund
Staged on a RED CARPET theme, ladies are given a tiara and tutu and the gentlemen receive tuxedo t-shirts and can wear these or perhaps an evening gown, prom dress or other fancy attire. Participants can also dress up and run or walk as celebrities and vie for special celebrity look-alike trophies (awarded to our 4-legged participants, too). We'd love for you to cheer our runners on as they run through your beautiful neighborhood and relive the celebrity status of yesteryear.
For additional details including the routes, please download the letter explaining the two run/walk events. Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding these events.
