Synapse Laps!

By | Blog, Events, News, Uncategorized | No Comments

CALLING ALL SUPERHEROES!

Saturday, March 24, 9 am to Noon
1416 Gables Court, Plano TX

Join us for the first-ever Synapse Laps event for BIND. Walk, jog, ride or roll with us at the BIND office park – every lap is 1/3 mile – and we’ll help count your laps.  Survivors, families, kids, and leashed pets are all welcome.

*Superhero costumes are encouraged*

This event is sponsored by Medical City Plano and a light lunch is sponsored by California Pizza Kitchen. We’ll also welcome therapy animals from Equest, games and activities for all ages, and the BIND Store will be open for business (BIND hats and shirts will be on sale!).  Thank you as well for your sponsorship to Modern Woodman Financial and Select Rehab Hospital in Denton.

Registration for Synapse Laps is FREE.  We are appreciative of those who can give a suggested $5/person donation onsite.  PLEASE ARRIVE PRIOR TO 9:15 am to park inside of our office park. By 9:20, the lot will be closed to through traffic so our walkers can safely begin at 9:30.  Other Questions?  Email us by clicking here.
