The Gems are taking 5k's to a whole new level of fun! Join us for our kick off walk and run event available to all levels of fitness. We are honoring our sisters currently fighting breast cancer, those who have been victorious, those we have lost, and bringing an active community event for the whole family. This is our launch event and will be available all over the country in 2014.
EARN YOUR GEM
At each mile marker you will have the opportunity to earn your Gem! A physical challenge and trivia questions directly associated with living healthier lives will be available for you at each mile marker. Answer a question or participate in a physical challenge at each mile marker and receive your stamp of completion. Once you cross the finish line you will take your stamps to the Gems Jewels for Healing Area sponsored by Beans Gifts. Choose a bracelet, necklace, earrings, or hair accessory to reward yourself for a job well done!
We will draw 5 winners from the finishers to receive a $250 prize. Plus we will be awarding additional costume and bling prizes (see below)!
Bling out yourself, your friends and your teammates and you could win a prize basket! We want to bring as much sparkle and shine into Austin as possible, so bring the glitter, jewels, gems, and show your sparkle! Prizes will be awarding to the top 3 teams and top 3 individuals decked out in the most outrageous and blinged out costumes!
FOR THE KIDS
Registration for a child to participate in the Gems Glam Jam 5k & Family Fun Fest is strictly for 5k participation. Each registration, regardless of age will receive a t-shirt, bag and included swag. Reunion Ranch has over 27 fun activities for kids and kids at heart to participate in.
Oh, and don't miss the clown making balloon animals!
IS THIS YOUR FIRST 5k EVENT?

With each additional Gems 5k you complete, you will earn additional Gems, and help more of our sisters "Heal In Comfort."
