Lacks Furniture, in partnership with the Rio Grande Valley Diabetes Association, is proud to bring back the Lacks Dasher & Prancer 5K Run/Walk!

Join us for 3.1 miles of holiday cheer with the friendliest reindeers of all, Lacks Dasher & Prancer. For the third time, we're organizing a fun-filled family-friendly event focused on promoting awareness around diabetes in the RGV through health and fitness. Funds generated will be donated to 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

Register on-site race day to participate and make a difference. Goodie bags filled with swag and a technical shirt will be given to the first 250 people to register. Finisher's medals will be awarded to the first 250 finishers and awards will be given to top two finishers in multiple age groups.
