CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital and Cross Creek Ranch invite surrounding communities to join the third annual “Celebrate Your Princess Breast Cancer Awareness Walk” benefitting the CHRISTUS St. Catherine Breast Cancer Awareness Fund. The fun-filled event at Cross Creek Ranch in Fulshear will include a kids’ zone, pampering, shopping, pumpkin decorating, music and much more.

According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 230,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the U.S. this year. Today there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. Because breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women, early detection and prevention are critical for all women. The CHRISTUS St. Catherine Breast Cancer Awareness Fund promotes community outreach, health, wellness and education.

The day’s festivities will begin at 7:30 a.m. with check-in, followed by an introduction of the Royal Court – a group of west Houston-area breast cancer survivors who will share their inspirational stories. Walk starts at 9:00 a.m., and the celebration will continue after the walk at the Pink Pamper Party, where participants will enjoy indulgences ranging from mini facials to paraffin hand treatments, cooling eye gel treatments to chair massages.

The public is invited to take part in the day-long and family-friendly festivities, including a Pink Party Kids Zone complete with bounce houses, a rock wall, face painters, petting zoo  and pumpkin decorating. Pets are welcome to participate in the walk, but must be on leashes. Vendors from local boutiques and spa services, including pet pampering by Waggin’ Tails Pet Ranch, will be featured. Attendees can also shop at the Pink Market, enjoy music by DJ OZ and much more.

Each participant receives a “Celebrate your Princess” tote and t-shirt. Entry fees:

  • Before October 7: $20
  • October 8–20: $25
  • Walk day: $30
  • “Sleep In” donation: $50
  • Children 6 and under are free!
