Great Strides benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Walk Benefit
Saturday, September 25th, 2010 @ 8:00am

GREAT STRIDES is the CF Foundations largest fund-raising event. It provides opportunities for all people within a local community to get involved forming teams through their workplace, through clubs and organizations or with friends and family.

Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge
Coming to Tyler for the 5th year! Come see your local Firefighters compete against some of the fastest competitors in the world!

The Challenge annually attracts hundreds of U.S. and Canadian municipal fire departments at more than 25 locations and is now expanding to countries around the world, including New Zealand, Germany, Argentina, Chile, and South Africa. The Challenge seeks to encourage firefighter fitness and demonstrate the profession’s rigors to the public. Wearing "full bunker gear" and the SCOTT Air-Pak breathing apparatus, pairs of competitors race head-to-head as they simulate the physical demands of real-life firefighting by performing a linked series of five tasks including climbing the 5-story tower, hoisting, chopping, dragging hoses and rescuing a life-sized, 175 lb. "victim" as they race against themselves, their opponent and the clock.

Saturday, September 25th, 2010 @ 8:00am at Broadway Square Mall    VERY INTERESTING!!!!

In his one man theatrical memoir, Tony, Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner JOHN LITHGOW shows why he is considered one of the greatest actors of our time when he explores storytelling as the unacknowledged tie that binds humanity.

STORIES BY HEART is a compilation of P.G. Wodehouse’s "Uncle Fred Flits By," Ring Lardner’s "Haircut" and Mr. Lithgow’s own family stories told to him and his siblings when they were children.
On the heels of its acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater presentation, this performing arts event, directed by Jack O’Brien (3 Time-Tony Winner including best director for Hairspray on Broadway), is a rare opportunity to witness the talents of an amazing actor up close and personal.
