Diva Dash

diva.gifYeah, I know I just posted about Buy Nothing Day (see below), but now I’m going to encourage you to spend some money. It’s for a charitable cause, so I guess that makes it OK.

Seattle’s first Diva Dash — a women’s and girls 5k fun run/walk (and 1k “Little Diva” walk/run) — will be taking place on December 3rd at Seward Park. Registration and t-shirt pickup opens at 7:30AM on the 3rd, with the walk beginning at 8:30 and the run at 9:00. The dash is a benefit event for Girls on the Run, a national after-school program promoting healthy exercise for girls between the ages of 8 and 11. Today is the last day to register with the guarantee of getting a groovy Diva Dash t-shirt.

Costumes are encouraged, but not required. A $20 registration fee gets you a t-shirt. If you want to contribute something more ($35-$65), you can register as a “Fairy Godmother” and get a tiara and/or magic wand (!). [Does this event have Drag Queen written all over it or what? I am so hoping the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence make an appearance.]

I promised a friend that I would go, and she just emailed to remind me that I need to register. Since I’m observing Buy Nothing Day, I decided I’ll live without the t-shirt and register tomorrow.
