Cassie Hines Race In These ShoesJoin our awesome community as we raise funds to help to empower young adults to restart their lives after cancer through outdoor adventure. Our Second Annual Race in these Shoes will prove to be an outdoor event like no other. The day will start with a 5K Run or walk through the trails of the gorgeous Stony Creek Metropark. For those looking for a shorter distance, we offer a 1 Mile Family Run or Walk as well. The day will continue with a family Barbecue as well as our infamous “Stiletto Strut” where you can get wild and crazy and strut your stuff, all for a good cause. These events, plus many other family friendly games and events will be offered throughout the day. This event promises to keep you on your toes.

    It was for a good cause, but a little slow for my taste.

    Donna, I'm so sorry I am not going to be able to attend. I did pay and that will help the charity. However, after careful consideration I realized that if the trail is that rugged I will not be able to do it. I have knee problems and this would just not be a good idea. I thought it was on flat ground.

    Don't understand what you mean its asking for a 1 to 3 number? Do you mean the 3 digit code on the back of your credit card perhaps?

    May 11, 2013

    • Linda

      No it just didn't like something but like I said I just hit enter and it took it. I did nothing different. I'm in!

      May 11, 2013

  • Linda

    OK I did the same thing except I just hit the enter button instead of clicking booking and it took! Go figure! I am going to walk to 5k and attend the BBQ. I also posted this on my two sites so I hope we have a good turnout from Meetup! Thanks Donna!!

    I tried two times to register and it bounces each time saying I have to put in a 1 to 3 number. I put 1 and I don't know what it is asking for. Please help!
