Grab your shoes and run for a cause

Get your running shoes on..Charity Chicks Houston has picked their first official event:  Run for the Rose benefitting the Marnie Rose Foundation (Sunday, March 29th).  We chose the Marnie Rose Foundation because Marnie was a truly inspiring woman having battled a rare form of brain cancer at the age of 27 (my exact age). We all know I'm a fan of reality TV and this brave woman battled her cancer on national television for the entire world to see.  

Since Charity Chicks Houston is comprised of inspiring individuals and those looking for inspiration, this was a perfect kickoff event for our group. Personally, I hold the Marnie Rose Foundation near and dear to my heart as it benefits brain cancer research. A very dear family friend lost her battle with brain cancer a few years back and I know just how much this has affected my friends and family.

The 5k run/walk is on Sunday, March 29th starting at Reliant Park. If you live in Houston and want to join our team for this wonderful cause please click here.  If you live outside of Houston or cannot attend but would still like to donate, please click here.  The cost for registration is $25 and is sure to be an uplifting time for all involved. (Even though our name is chicks, GUYS are 100% welcome and encouraged to join our team..we promise you'll have fun!)
