Time to take care of the mind and body while at WPPI! Join the Movement by participating in the WPPI Fun Run where not only do you get in a little exercise, you get to see the Vegas Strip before the crowds take up the sidewalks. There’s both a walk route (1.5 miles) and a four-mile run that includes a group photo at the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign. If you are not sure waking up early is going to work for your social schedule, choose our “Sleep In” category where you still get to support our beneficiary, Beautiful Together (in support of children waiting for families!) and score a super cool T while you count some more zzzzz’s...
OPEN TO ALL ATTENDEES

You’ll be mesmerized as each photographer interprets the same scene to create a unique portrait with no prior preparation. Hosted by Jerry Ghionis, this event is not to be missed!
