NWA Media photographers Marc Henning and Samantha Baker covered the Komen Ozark Race for the Cure event at Pinnacle Hills Promenade Saturday, April 27, 2013 in Rogers. The event was packed with survivors and supporters all braving the intermittent rain to raise money for finding a cure to breast cancer. Costumes and pink dogs were not uncommon sites at the race. Arkansas football coach Bret Bielema and wife, Jen, were honorary guests and Bielema shot of the symbolic start gun for the 5K competitive and non-competitive races.

Sunday, Sequoyah United Methodist Church in Fayetteville received the first of two truck-loads filled with pumpkins from Farmington, N.M. Church organizers were expecting approximately 70 volunteers to help unload the pumpkins – ranging in size from the size of your palm to ones as tall as your knee! It was cool to see the teamwork of all the volunteers as they made two huge lines and passes the pumpkins off from one person to the next. It sounds like the pumpkin path is quite popular in the neighborhood, so if you want first pick, you better get their quick! The second truck-load is expected in two weeks.

As I was driving to work today, I zipped over quickly in order to check out what was going on the in the parking lot at Kmart. Usually when I see anything that is labeled “free,” I HAVE to check it out.
As it turns out, the Wildcat Band was having a car wash – but the cool part about the event was it wasn’t just Har-Ber doing the fundraiser. Seven different band programs throughout the district were collectively fundraising together to wash as least 1,000 cars. I thought this was cool because, first of all, that’s a lot of cars. Second, I felt the unification of the band programs to do it all together was a really cool kick to the story. So many times the schools are in competition, but this event showed that you could still compete (as the individual programs had to collect pledges on their own) but work together for the greater good (raising money to put towards music programs). I just hope the kids remembered to wear sun screen!
