Zebra PHriends join the race!
Thursday, August 02, 2012

What fun we're having planning our annual PHA race this year.  Our race committee just decided to update our theme to mirror the PHA Zebra campaign.  So we hurried to update our race materials with the new logo.  Still gives me a smile everytime I look at it!

We also decided to upgrade to electronic timing for the runners this year, and are having a spiffy technical T-shirt made up for the serious runners.

To help bring a face to the cause, we set up a section on the new website with photos and stories under "Our Inspiration."  Check it out to see some of our race committee members and their stories.

Also, really excited about this... we are doing a full-on media campaign this year.  We're already scheduled to meet with Senator Cornyn in August, and we're scheduled to speak at the Lake Cities Chamber of Commerce in October, and we're busy getting on the agendas for several more cities.

If you can come out to show your support for any of these media events, please contact Susan at or Lesli  at  The larger our group, the bigger the impact, and we always enjoy the chance to visit with PHriends! 

Raffle tickets are on sale now, and we have great prizes this year - check out our website or our facebook page for more info.

While you're there, take the time to notice our wonderful sponsors.  They are already making this event possible and we appreciate every one of them.

Can't wait!  Seems like November is just around the corner.
