2016 Komen Houston Race For The Cure

Presented by Marathon Oil Corporation

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created.

The event raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.

This Race is unique in the fact that 100% of the net proceeds are allocated to our mission. 75 percent of the net income stays in our community to help fund local programs offering breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment. The remaining 25 percent of the net income supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program.

Exhibition

Elemental Alchemy
New Work by Wood Turning Sculptor Paula Haymond

Elemental Alchemy is an exhibition of diverse works in wood, metal, and stone. At the heart of medieval alchemy was the idea that all matter was composed of four elements: earth, air, fire, and water. With the right combination of elements, it was theorized that any substance on earth might be formed. This included precious metals as well as elixirs to cure disease and prolong life. While Haymond makes no claim to cure disease, she does transform base elements into art.

Using wood, brass, resin, Paua shell, fine silver, gold, opals, turquoise, and gem stones among others, she creates the intricate landscapes and pictographs of imagined ancient cultures.

Haymond often starts with highly figured wood as the foundation of her sculptures. Using a wood lathe, she creates the designs from which emerge individual pieces which are carved, burned, inlayed and mounted on stone bases. Haymond has expanded her work from wood to include brass musical instruments that she patinates to bring about a multicolored background for her carving and piercing to shine through.

​Haymond is a retired licensed psychologist turned professional artist. Residing in Katy, she creates sculptures of wood and brass. Having completed an intensive internship at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft in 2011, she joined Archway Gallery in 2012. Since then she has had both solo and collaborative shows at Archway Gallery and the Carl Jung Center of Houston.

Monster Mash Run

The Monster Mash Run was established in 2008 in Sugar Land, Texas and was moved to Sam Houston Race Park in 2009. In 2015, RA Sports Management relocated the race to the Karbach Brewery in order to provide a new USATF certified route and a new experience for our participants. Since it’s a Halloween themed run, most of the runners and families dress up in their favorite costume to enhance the fun.

The 5k/10k have a mass start at 7:30 AM (chip timed) with the kids run starting later in the morning at 9:15 AM. All courses are flat and fast.

All participants will receive a participant t-shirt and a commerative Karbach pint glass. Participants 21 and older will receive two beer tickets. Kids K participants will receive a tshirt and a trick-o-treat bucket for the candy station at the halfway point on the kids run. Overall winner (top 3 women, top 3 men in 5K and 10K) and top 3 costumes will be awarded after the race.
