The ESP Performing Company is hosting their 9th Annual Autumn 5K "Superheroes On The Run Fighting Through Breast Cancer" to raise funds to support the award-winning ESP Performing Company. During the "Superheroes On The Run Fighting Through Breast Cancer" 5k this year we will be awarding each of these categories: Most Creative Costume, Most Powerful Costum and The Cutest Costume. We are again proud to use this event to honor a 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 is missed deeply. A portion of the proceeds from this race will be donated to the Bald Ballerina, Maggie Kudirka.
