A 5k, and a fundraiser

Friends and family,
I have signed up to participate in the Kiss Me Dirty/Dirty Girls 5k in THREE short weeks.  I have been invited to join the Sassy b's team, and am so excited to run with this fun group of gals.  The Kiss Me Dirty race series is a female-only 5k mud obstacle course that benefits Gynecological Cancer Research--so we won't just be running a 5k distance, but we will be crawling through mud, jumping through tires, climbing rope nets and wading through soap suds, just to name a few obstacles!  Not only have I signed up as a competitor, but as a fund raiser as well.  I've set the goal to raise $250.00 before the race and I need everyone's help!
To donate, simply go to http://www.imathlete.com/donate/HeatherRuiz .  100% of your donations go directly to the UofA's Cancer Research Center.
If you are interested in supporting me and the rest of the Sassy b's as a spectator, the race will be held on Saturday, March 24th at the Pima County Fairground in Tucson, Arizona.  The first wave goes out at 9:30 AM.  The Sassy b's are scheduled to run in the fourth wave, so we will begin at 10:00 AM.  For more information on the Kiss Me Dirty Racing Series, go to http://www.kissmedirty.com or http://www.kissmedirty.com/tucson.html for information specific to the Tucson event.  You can also always email me for additional information.
I will be sure to post race photos here after the event!  Thank you for your support!
