For $15, today's side deal gets you an all-inclusive registration, a T-shirt, a goodie bag, and snacks and drinks at the post-race party for the Run To Cure HD 5K fun run and walk (a $25 value), which kicks off on Saturday, October 16, at 8:30 a.m. at Oyster Creek Park in Sugar Land. Your Groupon is valid for either the Run to Cure HD or its affiliated Team Hope Walk, a lower-impact version of the race that follows the same trail as the run. Proceeds from both ventures go toward the Huntington's Disease Society of America. Participants must register online prior to October 1.
The kindhearted grassroots gallopers at the ninth annual Run To Cure HD race and Team Hope Walk have lunged and leapt to raise awareness and needed funds to fight Huntington's Disease. After registering, runners and walkers can pick up their race packets at Luke's Locker on Thursday, October 14 (see the sidebar), or on the day of the race from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. Whether you choose competitive run, run for fun, walk, or moonwalk, you can sweat comfortably knowing that every limb movement goes toward a good cause. Compare times, goodie bags, and calf-flexes at the post-race party, where you're open to dive into a vat of complimentary snacks and beverages. Competitive female and male champions will take home the Shirley Whitley Memorial grand prize, which awards each with an expense-paid trip to the Carlsbad Marathon in San Diego, taking place in January.
Participants may begin registration starting 24 hours after the deal ends.
