VCU Health CMH to host annual High Heel Dash

Grab your heels and your friends and come out for a fun evening in support of breast cancer awareness and prevention.

VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital is hosting the annual High Heel Dash on Friday, Oct. 7, and everyone is invited to participate — men, women and children.

There will be lots of fun activities for everyone including a 100-yard run/walk in which all participants are required to wear heels. Several different “wacky” awards will be presented in the following categories: highest heels, craziest heels, best dressed individual, best dressed group, pinkest heels, pinkest hair and the overall “Miss/Mr. High Heel Dash 2016,” an award going to the participant who goes all out with attire and spirit.

There will also be an award for “Little Miss/Mister High Heel Dash” for the child who also goes all out in attire and spirit.

There will be activities for children and adults including face painting, blood pressure screenings, breast health education and door prizes. Registration is only $5 a person and begins at 5 p.m., and the race will start at 6 p.m.

The area’s annual High Heel Dash will be held at The Hendrick Cancer and Rehab Center at 750 Lombardy Street in South Hill. All proceeds from this event will be donated to Susan G. Komen Central Virginia Affiliate.

Grab your heels and your friends and come out for a fun evening in support of breast cancer awareness and prevention! For more information, call (434) 774-2541.
