It’s the weekend ya’ll! Here are things to do this weekend in Mississippi!

Making Strides Cruisin’ for a Cure

Instead of the traditional walk, teams who have raised $500 or more have been invited to participate in the Making Strides Cruisin’ for a Cure scavenger hunt! 8am until 12pm

There will still be a start line and a finish line, and you will do it all from your vehicle! Before you take off, decorate your cars for the car parade awards! At check-in, you will be able to turn in last of your funds and receive a road map! Your roadmap is key to finding all the different PINK PIT STOPS for the day.
