2016 Take A Hike For Bag It
Superheroes came together on Sunday, Nov. 13th for Superheroes Hike for BAG IT and banded together to help Fight the Fear of Cancer. It was a gorgeous Tucson morning as the heroes headed off for their varying hikes/walks to get their blood flowing.
Dan Marries from KOLD 13 served as the Master of Ceremonies and had the Superheroes hopping around the raffle and silent auction after their hike on the trail or their meditative walk with Mary Carhuff around the resort grounds. Once inside the ballroom BAG IT Founder, Sherri Romanoski, welcomed all the Superheroes and invited them to grab some grub from Blade’s Bakery, some Superhero Fuel with a special Green Lantern shooter, Hero Hash, Incredible Hulk-Cakes and more to rejuvenate them after their morning exercise.
Superman, Spiderman, Captain America, Batman, Robin and more were in attendance as the MC recognized those superheroes who reached (first mile) Fawcett City (home of Flash), Paradise Island (1.5 miles in) and those who received their capes at Maiden Pools (2.7 miles)!
The fun continued as Spider Man & Spider Woman won best costume, with a special showing by Chef Captain America. Next, Auctioneer Tim Shaw and MC Dan Marries engaged bidders in a live auction for UA Basketball tickets, UA signed team ball, a Spruce up the Home package and a 2 night stay for 2 at Miraval.
Karen Kluchonic, special guest, shared with us how BAG IT has impacted her and how the resources in BAG IT provided her with a great deal of support and comfort. We appreciate all the Superheroes who received their “dog tags” by making a pledge to BAG IT during this time.
Thank you to each Superhero who donated items and joined us to raise funds to help ensure that BAG IT continues to be provided at no charge to EDUCATE * SUPPORT * EMPOWER individuals diagnosed with cancer in our community. We appreciate YOU!
A BIG Superhero Thank You to All of Our Sponsors!
