On behalf of Tackles4Cancer you are personally invited to support the Super Hero 5K/1K Walk-Run on October 21, 2017 in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The event will take place at the beautiful Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve located at 20170 Chasewood Park Drive, Houston, Tx 77090 from 7AM-11AM. The National Cancer Institute reported that 20% of cancer patients will cancel or delay treatment due to lack of transportation resources. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for cancer patients through transportation. Run, walk, volunteer, or invite your friends to be a super hero!
The event is designed to be a family fun event and we encourage everyone to become a super hero for the day by wearing their favorite super hero costume as we recognize our beloved Breast Cancer Heroes. A post race party will follow the 1K event, with food and plenty of fun for big and little super heroes. Participants will also have the opportunity to go for a drive in one of many elite custom cars.The race will also feature a costume contest along with an awards ceremony and NFL guests.
