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 Children’s Zone, delicious refreshments, and will benefit 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.
Participants can choose from three events:
– 8:00 am 5K Run/Walk
– 7:45 am 1K Run/Walk
– Sleep In and support WHAM from home
All registered participants will receive a shirt and a goodie bag.
Every participant will receive a medal. Winners medals will be given to the top three male and female 5K winners in each age group category: 17 & under, 18-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 +. You must wear your bib to be timed and eligible to receive a medal.
