Cystic Fibrosis 5k, Guadalupe Schools, High Road for Human Rights


Ring in spring with some great Cinco de Mayo events that celebrate diversity in our community and raise some dinero for worthwhile causes. As an added bonus, all of these events will help you start to get in shape for summer fun. Begin the weekend with a 5K to fight cystic fibrosis, then dance the night away while raising money for Guadalupe Schools. Later in the week, find a salsa partner to raise money to help with global human rights.
