Detailed Information, Entertainment Information, & more about the 5K and Baby Boo Bash - Part I

We will have live music from 8:30-10:30 am from local band Etched In Stone. They were with us for last year's event and have graciously returned to support local families & our work in the Brazos Valley for The Little Monster's 5K For A Cause! We're excited beyond words at how much support we've received form the Bryan College Station community and beyond, with over 200 registrants coming together to raise awareness and support and honor preemies, babies born critically ill, and our angels.

When you arrive... 
>>For the race: check in if you are registered and haven't already picked up your race packet at Brazos Running Co. on Friday from 5-7! 

>>For the race: if you are registering the day of the event please find the "Register Here" sign. Please note that we will not have extra t-shirts available. We will be placing an order for additional shirts in the near future and will notify you by email (if you are local) of when pick-up is available! If you are out of the area we will ship you your shirt. 

To Bring
Please remember to bring special signs in honor or in memory of your baby. We will have volunteers who will be available to hold them and cheer you on throughout the race! Also, you are invited to dress in costume! Lastly, bring lawn chairs if you would like to sit & enjoy the live music we will be having all day. We will have blankets available for you to sit on the lawn, but chairs will not be. You're welcome to bring your own beach towels, blankets, and chairs!

Visit our bake sale, silent auction, gift table & enjoy some great music while you wait for the race to begin! We're certain Etched In Stone will get us fired up for the Little Monster's 5K!
