    Break out those pumps and dance!

    Dancing in high heels helps you feel sexy and graceful, the most powerful and sexy women are the ones who are totally relaxed in their own bodies. Once the body is warm & confident, It’s time to get those beautiful heels out . Dancing in heels takes skill & a massive amount of core strength. When you’re dancing in heels, you want to be light on your feet & centered in your body. Once you’re sorted with your shoes, the DIVA in you is good to go! All that’s left is to strut your stuff with pride & confidence, and nothing gives a woman more confidence than the most beautiful pair of shoes on her feet!

    The HoBOOken Halloween 5k and Scary Scurry Kids’ run, Hoboken’s largest charity race event, is scheduled for Saturday October 25, 2014. Produced by the Hoboken Elysianettes, Hoboken’s premiere women’s running club, the race has raised more than $100,000 for local charities since 2010. Event directors project that up to 1500 runners and 200 kids, many in costume, will participate in the highly anticipated family race and will enjoy the post-race food and entertainment.

    This year, for the first time, The HoBOOken will feature team competition. Teams of 3 or more will be scored based on 5K finish times. The HoBOOken is also excited to announce a team fundraising competition to raise additional money to benefit The Hoboken Shelter. The top team will win a case of Wine from Cork Wines and Spirits; each second and third place team will receive a dinner for 4 from The Wicked Wolf Tavern. For the third year in a row, individual participants who fundraise for The Shelter will be competing for a 5-course wine dinner party for six at Amanda’s and a dinner for six at the Elysian Café. The 5k race will begin near Pier A at 10:00 am and the Scary Scurry will follow on the pier at 11am. The event will be professionally timed by Compuscore.
