100% of the proceeds are donated to the Houston Parks & Recreation Department to improve our city parks and preserve our trees. This family friendly, non-profit event is organized by the Houston Area Road Runners Association (HARRA), an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to promote running as a competitive sport and a healthful exercise.   The race has donated over $250,000 for the Parks over the previous six years!
