About This Activity

 After crossing the pink finish line, stay for the AFTER PARTY at Pocket's Grille! Fruit, water, mimosas, a silent auction, Cuppy Cakes, nail art and polish changes, massage tables, face painting, a prayer net, awards ceremony, a live auction, take pictures in our new funky photo booth, visit educational resources from Komen Austin, and live music! This is an event you WON'T want to miss! Guaranteed. The first year, we raised $4000 for Komen Austin, the second year we raised $9000 for Komen Austin. The third year we raised $12,000, and last year, $20,000!!!!!!! Our goal this year is $25,000!  We SO can do this! The money raised goes towards breast cancer awareness/free mammograms for Bastrop County! ALSO---new to the event--- Six (6) $1000 scholarships will be given this year to local high school seniors! One $1000 scholarship is available to each of the six local high schools (Elgin, Smithville, Bastrop, Cedar Creek, La Grange, and Giddings) Eligiblity requirements: Must be a graduating senior from one of the listed high schools, must have been directly affected by breast cancer (a parent, etc. diagnosed or a survivor of the disease), and must complete application process and be selected by Scholarship Committee. Contact high school counselor's office for application. 

All race participants who register by April 1st are guaranteed a race shirt. Anyone who registers after that date is NOT guaranteed a shirt. Tell your peeps, because it's super CUTEEEE, and you're gonna want one. Promise. ;)

This is definitely a fun family event! Strollers, bikes, and wagons are allowed. Decorate them! Balloons, streamers, anything you can think of! Dress up!!! I love creativity! The more creative, the better! THINK PINK, EVERYWHERE! ;)

Plan your costumes, and outfits now! :) Think bandanas, crazy socks, crazy hair, wigs, tutus, etc.!

This race is self-timed using a digital clock at the start/finish line.
