To encourage race participants to sign up, Komen Arkansas is having a kick-off party on August 25.
It's being held at The Promenade at Chenal from 10AM to 1PM.
Tents will be set up near the Chenal 9 Theatres for the event. Komen Arkansas will have online Race registration available for $21, a $5 discount, during the Kick-Off Party. Discounted registration is available for all the Race events -- Run, Competitive Run, Family Run/Walk, Three Miles of Men and Sleep for the Cure. Race information will be provided by Race committee members, along with goodies.
There will be a signing event to support the second annual Fired Up For the Cure calendar. Firefighters featured in the calendar will be autographing calendars and posing for pictures from 10:30a.m. - Noon. Calendars will be available for $15. The pink fire truck will be present for photo opportunities, along with face painting and balloons for children.
The Promenade will be distributing $6 voucher coupons to the first 100 registrants good for a FREE ice cream at Maggie Moo's, FREE appetizer at participating Promenade restaurants or a FREE theater snack combo. Individuals registering for the Race will automatically have a chance to WIN great prizes and may donate $1 for each extra chance of winning. Registrants will not have to be present to win.
As part of the party, supporters are encouraged to "Like" The Promenade at Chenal Facebook page (click here). A $1 donation will be given to Komen Arkansas for every new "Like" on The Promenade Facebook page during the Kick-Off Party day.
"This event is new for us. In previous years, we hosted a kick-off for team captains only but decided to expand it in 2012. We want everyone to join us to celebrate the start of "Race season" in Arkansas," says Kristi Moody 2012 Race Chair. "We would like to thank The Promenade for hosting this event and working with us to make it successful."
"The Promenade at Chenal and its merchants are community focused, and are excited to partner with Komen Arkansas for this exciting 1st Annual Kick-Off Party. We welcome everyone to come out, register for Race for the Cure and take advantage of the one-day special offers and dining voucher discounts provided." - Linda Hinton, General Manager The Promenade at Chenal
