Run for Texas Children’s Hospital

Sunday, January 14 2018

Texas Children's Hospital is an official Houston Marathon and Half Marathon charity. The Run for a Reason program is a way for runners to run the race of their choice with a guaranteed entry -- on behalf of a charity.

Running for Texas Children’s Hospital is not just about the race, it’s a promise to our patients. By signing up to run and fundraise on behalf of Texas Children’s Hospital, your donations will directly impact the lives of countless children. Your race will become the race for our patients who are too sick -- sometimes too sick even to play outside. Your support will allow us to expand our care to even more children who need our help.

Make your promise and join the Texas Children's Running Team today! 

1. Run as a HERO

Texas Children's has a very limited number of “HERO” entries and they will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

"HERO" entries enable runners to make an upfront, tax-deductible donation of at least $350 plus the cost of race registration to Texas Children’s Hospital to secure a guaranteed race entry.

Sign Up for a HERO Entry here

  1. Select Texas Children’s Hospital.
  2. Select your race (half or full marathon).
  3. Make a tax deductible donation of $350 + race registration fee.
