Start at Congress & San Jacinto

We are beyond excited to announce that we are an official 2018-2019 Chevron Houston Marathon’s Run for a Reason charity!

Run for a Reason History

The Chevron Houston Marathon Run for a Reason Program connects the philanthropic community to passionate race participants willing to fundraise and raise awareness for meaningful causes. Since the program’s inception in 1995, more than $26 million has been raised to benefit various charities. For each of the past seven years, the Run for a Reason Program has surpassed two million dollars.

You can make your miles matter in 2019 by joining Team Kids’ Meals! Individuals have the option to run, jog or walk in the ABB 5K, Aramco Houston Half Marathon, or the Chevron Houston Full Marathon on behalf of Kids’ Meals. Your involvement will not only allow you to raise funds to be able to feed thousands of hungry children, but will provide hope to little hands. Each step you take is one step closer in ending the fight against childhood hunger! 

Team Kids’ Meals

Join Team Kids’ Meals and commit to raise a minimum of $500 for hungry children. This will secure a guaranteed entry in the 2019 Chevron Houston Marathon or Aramco Houston Half Marathon. Team KM participants will receive exclusive invitations to fun events and will receive a Team Kids’ Meals t-shirt for the race.

Not a runner? No problem! You can still take steps to end childhood hunger by walking the ABB 5K, and commit to raise $250 for hungry children.
