About This Activity

I Am A Gem ... Are You?

Join the Gems for our second annual event, as we continue to take 5k's to a whole new level of fun!

Our inaugural event was such a huge hit, we're excited to invite you to join us for our 2nd Annual walk-run event!  In honor of our sisters currently fighting breast cancer, those who have been victorious, those we have lost we are bringing you an active community event for the whole family.


We have just opened up our virtual registration option!  There are a few ways you can participate.  Check-In on Facebook on May 11th when you start your 5k, and check-in when you are done with a picture of your gliterry self, or your garmen, run/walking tracker.  We will send you your swag bag, and your very own Gems Finisher's Charm Bracelet.  Prizes will be awarded to 5 virtual finishers.  As with our live participants, 5 participants will be drawn at random from all of the virtual participants, and prizes will be shipped to you.


Cross our finish line and you'll earn a custom designed charm bracelet!  Made of sterling silver, and individually created for all of the Gems who cross our line.  Our focus is on having FUN, for that reason our event is untimed.

We will draw 5 winners from the Austin finishers to each receive a prize worth $250.  An additional 5 finishes will be drawn from the virtual finishers to each receive a prize worth $250.  Plus we will be awarding additional costume and bling prizes (see below)!


Bling out yourself, your friends and your teammates and you could win a prize basket! We want to bring as much sparkle and shine into Round Rock as possible, so break out the glitter, jewels, gems, and show your sparkle! Prizes will be awarding to the top 3 teams and top 3 individuals decked out in the most outrageous and blinged out costumes!


This year we have added a 1 mile Kids Run. Each registration, regardless of age will receive a finishers bracelet, t-shirt, bag and included swag.  Our finishers area will include fun activities for the kids to enjoy throughout the morning.  As they are confirmed we will update you.


If this is your first ever 5k, join us in our training program.  Whether you plan to walk, run or dance your way through this fun 5k we can help you feel confident and ready to take on the challenge!  In addition, you will have an opportunity to return and see what progress your new lifestyle changes have brought you.  With each additional Gems 5k you complete, you will earn additional Gems, and help more of our sisters "Heal In Comfort."
