For WPPI attendees, the fun doesn't stop once the doors to the expo and conference center close! Attendees are invited to attend special events planned throughout the week in Las Vegas. And while most of these events take place during after hours with cocktails and music, we're excited to see that photographers were just as eager to wake up early and join us for Tuesday morning's Fun Run.

Over 60 WPPI attendees started their day with a brisk run through the streets of Las Vegas for a great cause. The run supported the charity Beautiful Together, founded by Steve and Tamara Lackey, which improves the quality of life for children without families waiting for a home.


Attendees who couldn't brave the early wake up call and chill could also purchased t-shirts for $25 at the  WPPI Concierge Desk near the glass doors that lead to the Marquee Ballroom. All proceeds went straight to Beautiful Together.
