Just about everyone in HoUSton was either personally affected by Hurricane Harvey or knows someone who was affected. Houstonians and people across the country have been donating their money and time to help friends, families and strangers during the recovery. The RUN HOUSTON STRONG, fun run, will help raise money for kids and families displaced by Hurricane Harvey and living in shelters through our Houston local partner, HOMEMADE HOPE. It will also bring the community together to have a little fun during a time when fun has not been prevalent. The net proceeds from the RUN HOUSTON STRONG will be donated to HOMEMADE HOPE a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit .

The RUN HOUSTON STRONG event is a 5k and 10k run/walk that will start at Stude Park, 1031 Stude St. Houston, TX 77007, and run along the White Oak Bayou Greenway Trail.

We will also have a virtual run option so people outside the Houston area can participate and donate. Your shirt and koozie will be mailed to you before the race (depending on when you sign up) so you can wear the shirt during your run and tag #runhoustonstrong on social media. There is no need to send us your time since this is a charity run.
