Bel Inizio

Located in Houston, Texas, Bel Inizio helps disadvantaged women develop self-confidence and life skills through fitness and nutrition. Participants train to complete a 5K, which helps prepare them for the ultimate race — the race for a better life.

Houston has a generous giving community and great compassion for those in need. We have emergency shelters, transitional housing, and half-way houses. The agencies offer case workers, recovery programs, and job skills training. What gets lost, and is critically needed, is helping individuals achieve the self esteem and confidence that can come from an ongoing exercise and nutrition program.

Running Apart...Together (Virtually)

June 1 - 30, 2020

Running is my therapy!  I have missed running since my ACL tear in 2015 and up until then I was doing a half marathon every year.  I'm ready to get back into the saddle and run for an amazing cause.   Plus this is  super sweet training for the Houston Half - Marathon in Jan 2021 along side my niece Bella.  She has quite a pace therefore this ole lady needs to train and get ready!!!  Will you join me in supporting Belinizio - a fabulous charity that inspires all women that have experienced setbacks such as addition, trafficking and  homelessness to incorporate healthy and mindful choices to change their lives?
