Head for the Cure 5K, LoziLu Women’s Mud Run benefit cancer causes

head for cure 3I hate cancer. It stole my father’s life last October.

Two events this weekend raise money and awareness for cancer-related causes.

  • Don’t mind a little mud? Participants will scale obstacles, climb nets, conquer walls, descend towering slides, dance and wallow in mud at the 5K LoziLu Women’s Mud Run on Saturday, March 28. Donations will be used to pay medical bills and help children with cancer achieve their bucket lists. Registration is $69 (less for military, children or students) here. http://www.active.com/austin-area-tx/running/mud-runs-races/lozilu-women-s-mud-run-austin-2015
  • Participants in the Head for a Cure 5K make their way along the course at Camp Mabry.

  • Rather keep it clean? The Head for the Cure 5K kicks off at 8 a.m. Sunday, March 29 at Camp Mabry, 2200 W. 35th Street. No mud, just a 5K run that benefits the Head for the Cure Foundation, which provided seed money to launch the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, a brain cancer research organization led by the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Registration is $35 through March 25 ($40 the day of the race, and discounts for multiple registrations) here. http://www.headforthecure.org/central-texas
