It’s not yet Halloween, but if you’re anything like us you’re already anxiously anticipating the holiday season. The treats, the quality time with family and friends, the ugly holiday sweater parties…
But thanks to the upcoming Hideous Holiday Sweater Run, you don’t have to wait another month to kick off the holiday season.
On Saturday, November 9, Team Brogan & Partners and hundreds of other unfashionable runners will be enjoying a scenic 5K or 1-mile run or walk through Kensington Metro Park. Not only will there be prizes for the most hideous sweaters, but there will be free beer samples from Witch’s Hat Brewing Company, soup from Zoup!, a photographer to capture your anti-fashion statements and plenty of sweet treats and goodies for the whole family. And in true holiday spirit, Forgotten Harvest will be there to collect canned goods for those in need.
While we’re looking forward to dressing silly and running around a beautiful park, it’s not the only reason we’re looking forward to this event. We’re excited for the Hideous Holiday Sweater Run because all the proceeds from the event will go to our fabulous client, the Scleroderma Foundation’s Michigan Chapter. Scleroderma is a chronic, autoimmune disease – which means it is a condition in which the body’s immune system attacks its own tissue. It’s a devastating disease with no known cause and no known cure – YET. That’s why this event is so important. By registering for the Hideous Holiday Sweater Run not only will you be participating in a fun, memorable event, but you will help stimulate research and support scleroderma patients and their families. After all, isn’t helping others what the holiday season is all about?
Get Ready. Get Set. Get Hideous.
