Oct. 18, 2019 – Plano, TX – My Possibilities (MP) invites you to the 2nd annual HIPster Relay, Saturday, Nov. 2, presented by Berry Family Services. HIPster Relay is an inclusive awareness walk-a-thon at the My Possibilities Campus for Higher Learning.
HIPster Relay focuses on participation and inclusion, it is not timed, nor will pledges/donations be made on a per lap basis. The event consists of activities for all ages and abilities, themed laps, food trucks and vendors.
To participate, individuals are encouraged to register online and pay a $15 registration fee. Then, create a fundraising page at 2019hipsterrelay.funraise.org. Once the individual page is created, participants can fundraise as individuals or create a team fundraising page. A team is an excellent way to involve friends and family members. Teams can consist of up to 10 individuals.
Participants and attendees will enjoy a HIPster-led warm-up, HIPster dance performance and Dallas Fort Worth team mascot dance-off. MP is excited to announce, The K&C Masterpiece, Cory Mageors and Kevin Hageland, of 105.3 The Fan will emcee the event for the second year in a row.
