I was surprised to see my race packet in my mailbox yesterday. I am checking with the Komen people to see if everyone is getting their packets mailed to them. The Race Packet includes a Susan G. Komen t-shirt, a race bib, safety pins, timer chip (if applicable) and a timeline and map of the race course.

Mark your calendars for our T-shirt Blinging Party on Thursday, 6/4 from 7 – 9 PM. This is when you can pick up and/or pay for your team t-shirt. Come to Carpenter Park Recreation Center at 6701 Coit Road to customize your team t-shirt. I have some fabric paint, stencils, iron-ons, and sequins. Please bring anything extra you would like to use or anything you would like to share. This will be a great time to meet and greet your team!

Please let me know if you have any questions! Thanks!

Here is some extra info…

I Know Someone Who Still Wants On The Team – Tell them to sign up on Race Day! There will be a registration booth there. The catch is, I will not be able to provide them with a team t-shirt.

Carpool/Caravan – We will meet at Carpenter Park Recreation Center between 6:30 – 6:45 AM on race day. Please park behind the building in the west parking lot by the baseball fields. We will carpool/caravan to the Legacy Parking Lot on the EDS Campus. The line of traffic is always long! Legacy Drive will close at 7:30 AM. In your packets is a map of the course and parking. If we get separated or you can’t meet us for any reason, we will reconvene at the team photo area. We will meet there at 7:30 AM to get the picture taken. After that, you are on your own to run, walk, or stroll the race course!

Chip Timing – Chip timing will be available for $5. If you would like to compete for an award, you must have a chip. If you preregistered for one, it should come in your packet. Runners competing for awards should enter the start corral by 7:45 AM. Timed runners must be registered by 7:45 AM on race morning.

Fundraising – Our fundraising goal is $2,000. Fundraising is optional, but encouraged. You can collect donations online by sending an email from the site. You can also send Thank You Cards. You can also get cash and check donations. If you need a paper form for fundraising, please let me know. There are prizes for those who raise $500 or more.

Plano Cure-sader Info Sites – I have created many different spots where people can get Plano Cure-saders information. If anyone asks you for online information, you can refer them to any of these sites. There is a blog: A Facebook Group: And a Facebook Event:
