Rockets Run!

Calling all BCRR Members!!!!!

We are in NEED for more volunteers for the Rockets Run on Sunday, November 8th at 6:00 a.m. This race brings in $2000-$2500 in annual revenue which helps fund things like the Christmas Party. We have committed to providing 50 volunteers and are very short of that number at this time.

Volunteers are needed to help us man water stations, call mile splits, and serve as road guards.

Please contact Susan Cita to volunteer:

We are also short of garage sale items, so please bring your "treasures" over to the Modern B&B (4003 Hazard, Houston, 77098) between now and November 6th.

Garage sale proceeds will go towards the BCRR Christmas Party
