We're Back! Lacks Furniture and the Rio Grande Diabetes Association have joined forces to host this year's Dasher & Prancer 5K Run/Walk!

Join us for 3.1 miles of holiday cheer with the friendliest reindeer of all, Santa's Dasher & Prancer. You'll love the fun-filled family-friendly event focused on promoting awareness around diabetes in the RGV through health and fitness. Proceeds to benefit the Rio Grande Valley Diabetes Association.

Why join? Diabetes doesn’t stop, it’s 24/7 365 days a year. There are 76,000 + people in the RGV living with diabetes right now! Over 29 million Americans have diabetes, and 86 million more people are estimated to have pre-diabetes
