Bridgeland is again hosting the Mistletoe Fun Run, set for Sunday, Dec. 4, and benefiting Run Over Cancer. Participants can choose a 10K or 5K run, a 1-mile Family Walk or a half-mile Kids’ Fun Run. Registration begins at 6:30 a.m., with the 10K and 5K runs starting at 7:30 a.m. The Family Walk follows at 8:30 a.m., and the Kids’ Fun Run starts at 9 a.m.  An activity area will be set up 8-11 a.m. and children are encouraged to bring their holiday wish lists, as Santa is expected to visit.

Registration fees through Nov. 15 are $25 for the 10K and 5K runs; $15 for the Family Walk; and $10 for the Kids’ Fun Run. Costs increase by $5 after Nov. 15 and race day fees are $10 more than early registration. Costumes are encouraged, with a $25 prize going to the best costume.

Run Over Cancer is a non-profit organization started in 2008 to help families currently suffering from the disease with food, housing and medical expenses. The Bridgeland race benefits the Files family. Sheena Files, a self-employed housekeeper, is a breast cancer survivor who last year was diagnosed with melanoma and is facing mounting expenses due to treatments and continued testing.
