The ESP Performing Company is hosting the 9th Annual Autumn 5K “Superheroes On The Run Fighting Through Breast Cancer” to raise funds to support the award-winning ESP Performing Company. We are again proud to use this event to honor our dear ESP friend who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2010. Pamela Gray Hobbs was a dancer, teacher, and parent affiliated with ESP for over 20 years. She remains in our hearts. In memory of Pam, a portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Bald Ballerina. The 2019 ESP Autumn 5K “Superheroes On The Run Fighting Through Breast Cancer” will be held on Saturday, October 26th, 2019 on the grounds of Mount Saint Mary’s University. Runners and walkers are welcome!
This year we will be holding a contest for the most creative, most powerful and the cutest costumes! Runners and volunteers will be entered into this contest and the winner will receive a prize!
