5k/10k and Pumpkin Dash will help raise funds for Rescue-Rebuild-Rejoice Transitional Housing ministry to single mom families.  Hays Hills launched this ministry to help single moms in crisis get back on their feet through housing, mentoring and assisting with other needs.  After the race, stay for the Hays Hills Fall Family Festival! This is a free event, open to all. There will be inflatables, games, candy, and prizes! Bring the whole family! 

Pumpkin Dash is a short little walk or sprint around the parking lot to buckets of mini-pumpkins -- grab your pumpkin and "dash" back to the finish!  Keep your pumpkin and decorate it at the family fall festival!
