Addison-based Mary Kay is switching to a virtual race this year! Join the MK5K to run 3.1 miles anywhere in Addison you want, from October 1-31. Run, jog or walk anywhere of your choosing, at your speed, and time it on your own. Afterward, you can record your official race results. Make sure to wear your favorite shade of pink! Proceeds will be donated to the Mary Kay Foundation, which is dedicated to helping women with cancer and women plagued by domestic violence. All registered participants’ race shirts and swag will be mailed to you after the event. Register at mk5k.com.
