Description

Join us for WHAM's first 1k & 5k run/walk!  This fun-filled and timed run/walk through the Westchase District includes a fun-packed ChildrenZone, delicious refreshments, and will be benefiting West Houston Assistance Ministries (WHAM), where we provide free life-changing services that nurture potential and self-sufficiency in those who are struggling to meet their most basic needs.  We feed and clothe children, families, seniors, and the homeless, offer financial aid with rent and utilities to prevent eviction and disconnection of vital services, and provide employment services, education, and training including GED, ESL, and vocational certification classes to give the unemployed the opportunity to learn new skills so they can find meaningful work.  Since 1982, our focus has been to carry out Christ's command to love and provide for those in need, and our programs have contributed to alleviating poverty, building thriving communities, and giving hope to the hopeless.

Thank you for registering for the WHAM Spring Dash!  To add fun and motivation to your 5K journey, don't forget to also join our fundraising team "Team WHAM."  Click Team WHAM for Details.
