Pendgo Timing will time the 5K and 2Mile using the most state-of-the-art equipment.  Pendgo Timing uses a disposable timing chip that is attached to your race bib.  By using a disposable timing chip, you will not be forced to stand in a long line the morning of the event waiting for someone to give you a shoe chip.  After the event, you will not be chased down by volunteers trying to cutoff you shoe chip.  Pendgo Timing is a local company that employs local people who live and work in your community.

Family Counseling Service is a non-profit organization with a mission of providing therapy, education and advocacy in Nueces and surrounding counties.  The proceeds of this event directly benefit the community through the programs of Family Counseling Service.

Our mission for this community event is to bring out children and their families.  We would like to take advantage of this opportunity to send a message to the children of the importance of family and healthy living.

The breakdown of the family unit leads to erosion in the general community.  Without strong family support, the basic needs of our children such as love, attention, communication, morality and general well-being are unmet.  Gangs, drugs and other destructive behaviors often fill these voids.  Bringing children together with their families in activities like our event helps to involve parents and other adults in their children's lives.

We realize we need your help.  Your support of our event will help our agency continue to offer services at reduced fees or no fees to those who have no ability to pay.  We would appreciate the privilege of having you participate in this very special day.
