Turn your fitness goal into something more and Run for a Reason for Texas Children’s Hospital.

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.
