Benefitting Babies

The March of Dimes fundraising events are set to take place this Saturday, March 31.

The Second-Annual 5k Bustin’ for Justin and the Perryton Preemies Fun Run/Walk will be at 10 a.m. with registration from 9 to 9:30. There’s a $25 early registration fee or $30 registration fee on the day of the event. All participants will receive a T-shirt, and there will be prizes for the top three in each age category.

Fun Day activities and a chili cook-off will be from 12 to 4 p.m. at Whigham Park. Activities will include carnival booths, craft booths, inflatable bounce houses, a bungee trampoline, food and drinks, and music by DJ Toon Toon. For those of you who missed out on last year’s Fun Day, here’s footage of some of the kids’ activities. During the afternoon, there will be a drawing for a getaway sponsored by KXDJ. The winner may choose from a trip to Branson, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Denver, or Las Vegas. Raffle tickets are $10 each or $100 for 12.

For those interested in entering the chili cook-off, the entry fee is $30, and entry forms are available here. Contestants must cook the chili on site with their own ingredients and equipment and may begin cooking after an 8 a.m. contestant meeting at the park. Judging and public tastings will begin at noon.
