Run Houston! Minute Maid Park 10K, 5K, 1K
 Houston, TX
March 23, 2019

I’m so excited that on Saturday, March 23 I will be participating in the Run Houston Minute Maid Park 5k event, for a specific cause.   I have chosen FAM Houston as my Reason2Race. FAM Houston is a non-profit refugee program that encourages inclusivity, community, and empowerment to refugees in the Houston area.

As a social worker in a national non-profit, one of my goals is to assist our refugee clients in becoming self-sufficient, while acclimating to their new life in America. With this campaign, I’m doing something that I love to do (run a race); (2) Raising funds for a great cause; and (3) Promoting an organization that has the same goal as my 9-to-5 job.

Please contribute to our cause.  Any amount would be great: $50, $100 or whatever you can spare. THANK YOU for caring about FAM Houston!
