Run Houston! Sugar Land 10K, 5K, 1K
December 2, 2017
 Sugar Land, TX

My name is Courtney Richardson and I believe that God has placed me here to fulfill a purpose of helping others in need! I moved to Houston about 3 and a half years ago to begin my career as a healthcare professional. I currently work at Baylor College of Medicine in Human Resources managing communications for health and welfare and retirement benefits plans. I am also an active team member of our award-winning wellness program, BCM BeWell. I am a New Orleans native with a passion for food, but realized in 2012 that I needed to take charge of my health.

I come from a backgroud of many health issues and decided that I would become more health conscious to make sure I did not experience some of the same issues many of my family members have. My mother recently passed away due to unforeseen health issues and I have made a commitment to help educate others about their health and well-being.

My reason for running this race is because of my best friend's daughter, Kennedy. Kennedy was born 4 months early along with her twin Morgan. Morgan passed away shortly after birth and doctors diagnosed Kennedy with Cerebral Palsy and was sure that she would not make it. She has persevered through numerous heart, brain and other surgeries and is so bright! My best friend is an ER nurse in New Orleans and it is very difficult for her to find assistance with Kennedy’s medical needs because of her “income”. My goal is to help raise awareness for those in the area that may face similar adversities. After celebrating Kennedy’s 4th birthday with her, it is an honor to run on behalf of her!

Join me in making a difference for United Cerebral Palsy of Greater New Orleans, won’t you?

I ask that you click the SPONSOR ME button on this page and provide kids like Kennedy the support they deserve. Contribute what you wish. Any amount will make a difference: $50, $100, $500, $1,000 or other.

Thank you for your support. It means more to me than I can express.
