2015 Mud Run – Oct. 24

Posted on: August 2nd, 2015 by brent

About The Mud Run

The Pensacola Mud Run made a big splash in 2013 as the first fundraising event to unite our broader community for an incredible cause, Pathways For Change.

Proceeds from the Pensacola Mud Run support all programs at Pathways For Change, a Pensacola, Florida nonprofit organization, founded in 2004. Social, educational and spiritual assistance for individuals impacted by poverty, substance abuse and lack of education is the mission of Pathways For Change.

Thanks to Pathways For Change, those seeking adventure will have their fill of fun AND MUD at the Pensacola Mud Run, while helping someone else get clean in the process.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer – Oct. 31

Posted on: August 2nd, 2015 by brent

Join Us !

Hi, we’re Cat Country 987 – Team “Cat-A-Tude”

Event: Making Strides of Pensacola on Saturday, October 31, 2015

Support Cat Country 987 – Team “Cat-A-Tude”

Why We’re Putting On Our Pink Bras and Making Strides

Welcome to our Team Page! Almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way, so we’ve decided to make a difference by putting on our pink bras and raising money to walk in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.

Today 1 out of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support. The donations our team raises will enable investment in groundbreaking breast cancer research, free information and services for women diagnosed with the disease, and access to mammograms for women who need them. Our donations will help more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors celebrate another birthday this year!

Why We Support the American Cancer Society

Saving lives from breast cancer starts one team, one walker, and one dollar at a time. We know that the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer. We know that supporting them will ensure that if you need someone to talk to anytime of the day or night, they’ll be there. If your friend is losing her hair from chemo, your mother needs a ride to treatment, or a loved one needs a place to stay when treatment is far from home, they will be there to help.

Join us and “Put On Your Pink Bra”. Together we will walk for a world without breast cancer.
