2015 Cypress Creek Lakes Zombie Stomp Race Raised $20,000 for Cy-Hope
The Cypress Creek Lakes second annual Zombie Stomp 5K Run/1K Kids Fun Run, presented by the Amy Lippincott Team, Gary Greene Better Homes & Gardens Realty, took place on Saturday, October 24, 2015. The 5K started at 8 am and the 1 mile run/walk started at 9 am. Despite a rainy forecast, the race took place before the weekend's heavy rains moved in and didn't impact the event.
The event raised $20,000 for Cy-Hope, an organization dedicated to making life better for kids in Cy-Fair who are economically, relationally, and spiritually disadvantaged.
This race was through the beautiful master-planned community of Cypress Creek Lakes, near the community’s Phase 3 Recreation & Welcome Center and several sections of the neighborhood south of Tuckerton Road.
This was a chip timed race, is USATF sanctioned, and managed by WinWin Events. Everyone who participated received a race t-shirt and goodie bag plus a huge finisher MEDAL. Awards were given out for the top finishers in each age group, including cash awards and prizes. Prize drawings were also given out to non-runners.
Hosted by CBS Radio, there was free food, a pumpkin patch, face painting and bungee trampolines and a bounce house for the kids. Event emcees Lauren from MIX 96.5 and Sarah Pepper with Hot Hits judged the best costume contest, which had a $100 prize. Runner also came across some Zombies on the course.

MORE INFORMATION ON CY-HOPE: The mission of Cy-Hope is to make life better for kids in Cy-Fair who are economically, relationally, and spiritually disadvantaged. Our vision is to mobilize the entire community to provide opportunities that will enable all children to grow up to be productive citizens.
Our Backpack Feeding Program started when we recognized many of the children in CFISD had no food over the weekends. So in the Fall of 2011 we piloted the program beginning with 2 schools, 2 volunteers and 80 bags of food. Currently we are in 72 of the 85 CFISD schools, with over 100 volunteers and serving nearly 2000 students with about 8 tons of food per week.
