Three Ways to be a Superhero

There are three questions we get asked at least a dozen times a day: 1) where do we stay, 2) how do I join a team… and our personal favorite 3) how else can we help? So glad you asked! Turns out there are lots of things you can do to help us: Fundraise Volunteer...
What is a Virtual Race

What is a Virtual Race

A virtual race is a race that literally can be done anywhere, and at any time. With our races, we invite registrants to choose their own pace and goals. Walk, run, push a stroller, take your dog. Do it on a trail, mountain, beach, sidewalk, or treadmill. You can even...
The story behind our bird

The story behind our bird

“I’ve got your bird. Do as I say, and no one gets hurt.” These were the chilling words whispered in my ear in the middle of our 2015 event. A group of survivors had birdnapped our beloved Fancy the Flamingo (she’s the giant inflatable flamingo that greets our runners...

It is Just a Number

It is Just a Number

Scales. Likely the single-most hated word of women. We step on, we shudder, and then we console ourselves with pizza. Why is that number so powerful? Why do we let it consume us? And why do we get on the darn scale so often if all it does is depress us? In context,...

6 Ways Pledging the Pink Makes You a Super Hero

Not all heroes wear capes (but you’d look great in one) 1. You look the part. Yeah, Wonder Woman still kicks ass without the tights. And the Black Widow can do karate sans the leather. No matter what you’re wearing, you’ll look fab giving cancer a “kapow.” But, dang:...
