I am so excited to attend the Pediatric Cancer Research Cinco de Mayo half marathon this weekend. This is their 13th annual race to help raise funds for pediatric cancer research. There is going to be a 10K, 5K, 1K Kids’ Fun Run and Bike Tour event at the Irvine Spectrum, CA on May 1, 2011.
Highlights of the expo include food, goodies and free giveaways. The OC Family Kids’ Fun Zone features a petting zoo, rock climbing wall, video game truck, bounce houses galore, face painting, train rides, and much more! The adults can stop by the beer garden for a cold beverage after the race. Attendees enjoy the live entertainment featuring local bands, mariachis, deejay, dancers, and local pro sports mascots. PCRF’s Cinco de Mayo fiesta is one of the OC’s favorite weekend family events!
Did I mention that Tenley and Kiptyn from the Bachelor are going to be there? They have volunteered their time to come out and be the honorary starters of the race. They are involved through a Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation Charity Partner, the Cancer Angels of San Diego. I love to hear about celebrities that are passionate about getting involved in charities that help children.
There is still time to register to run!
If you don't have time to run this weekend I highly encourage you to make a donation to this great cause!
I hope to see all of you at this great event this weekend.
