Are you running out of ways to propose to your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day? Well the race is on for you to submit your love story. For the first time, the annual Cupid Dash 10k/5k/fun run wants to help one lucky couple get hitched. Entrants who shared their lovey-dovey stories of personal romance to MakeAWay Charities could win win a diamond engagement ring from Zales (and a massage package from Red Door) and get to pop the question February 18 on race day, which could lead to some pretty good times in the race if someone turns down a proposal and books it for safety. Even if you don’t win, you can still get a $5 kiss tattoo and enjoy live music from Live80 at the Shops at Legacy in Plano. Registration fees are $25 for the fun run, $40 for the 5k and $45 for the 10k. Visit www.makeawaycharities.org/ for more details and to register.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
