TAMUCC sports, dog lovers raising money for free mammograms
Paws for a Cause
Texas A&M University Corpus Christi Recreational Sports is hosting Paws for a Cause, a dog walking fundraiser that benefits First Friday - an effort to provide breast screening for women in South Texas.
The event will be held on Friday, Oct. 13, on the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi’s Hike and Bike Trail, with registration starting at 5 p.m. and the walk starting at 6 p.m.
The course begins and ends at the Hammerhead parking lot.
The purpose of Paws for a Cause is to raise awareness of breast cancer and local animal adoption opportunities, while raising funds for First Friday, a local organization that partners with Christus Spohn Hospital to underwrite free mammograms for South Texans in need.
A registration donation for the event is recommended at $5, though any size donation is welcome, and all proceeds benefit First Friday.
