High Heel Hike: Walk with the Divas!
The Deal Divas are excited to take part in a very cool event: The Tampa Bay High Heel Hike. But we need you!
On Saturday, Sept. 20, your favorite queens of snark will strap on heels and walk through Tampa's Hyde Park Village to fight breast cancer. Over five years, the Hike has raised more than $300,000 for the community.
We've all been impacted by breast cancer in some way. But as young women, this event tugs at us even more - the money raised will help fund research and advocacy programs for women age 20-45 stricken with the disease.
Plus, it's tons of fun. Take a look at pics on the site, and you'll see that people go all out! Boas, fishnets, tiaras! And you can bet the Deal Divas won't be shrinking violets.
So we're asking you, readers, to join the Deal Divas walking team. Registration is only $25 and you get a T-shirt. For choosing Deal Divas, you'll get cool swag courtesy of tbt* and the St. Petersburg Times, event sponsors. And we'll throw in a secret Diva accessory so everyone will know who you're reppin.'
And there's more! As a special treat, Deal Divas will cover registration for a few readers. Just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining how your life has been affected by breast cancer. Free registration is first come first serve, so write soon! We'll post some stories on the blog to share.
If you're daunted by the idea of walking 1K in heels, don't be! That's less than a mile. It's probably the length of the parking lot to the office, and we bet you do that every day!
Please visit the High Heel Hike site to register. Go to online registration, then click on participant registration to the left. Scroll down and choose "Deal Divas" and you're on your way! If you can't make the Hike, you can still make a donation.
