I love a chance to pay it forward! When I can, I try to support and involve my family in these great ventures.

There is a 5K Run/Family Fun Walk on November 9th, called Harvest Hustle, at Fair Park.  Benefitting Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance, this year’s event will bring awareness to the growing percentage of families who are now homeless.  More families than ever have become homeless because of foreclosures and job losses in recent years. Dallas schools had more than 2,500 homeless students last school year. Thousands of children across North Texas are living in shelters, cars, motels and other temporary places.

Slappy and Monday and Lone Star Circus will be there to entertain.  Face painting and more. A circus extravaganza!

  1. I’d love to win this as I LOVE doing 5Ks with my husband and 2 sons. My favorite things about fall are the colors of the leaves on the trees, pumpkins, Halloween with my boys, and this year will be my oldest 10th birthday!

  2. Shelly Rollins says:

    What a wonderful opportunity! This would be the perfect opportunity for my little one and I to wear our dynamic duo costumes. Some of our fall favorites are the smells of the different soups and stews we get to make, watching the leaves change colors, looking winter wood while walking on the trails and the noisy squirrel that visits us very fall/winter. 🙂

  3. Would love to do this with the family! Our favorite thing in Fall besides the weather is our trips to pumpkin patches. 🙂

  4. Fall is our favorite season, bringing with it hayrides at the pumpkin patch. Always a favorite memory with our family:)

  5. Thais Aguiar says:

    Favorite thing is the pretty weather to enjoy outside activities with the kids.

  6. What an awesome giveaway! Favorite thing about Fall? Drop in north Texas temps; leaves changing color; baking!

  7. Shelly Rollins says:

    On pins and needles waiting to see who won this one. 🙂
