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.
Bel Inizio is my Reason2Race, and I gratefully ask for your support.
In just a few short days, I am once again "going to go for it" and complete the Run Houston! Sam Houston Race Park 10K in honor of Bel Inizio. Now the 10K is not too hard but the January 1 race sure is! Can you imagine being up at the crack of dawn after New Year's Eve to run 6+ miles? I must really love this organization!
I do of course, but mostly I love the Run Houston! Run for a Cause opportunity. If I am the top fundraiser, Run Houston! will award Bel Inizio an additional $500! Now that is the way to start 2019!
Please support me as I run for Bel Inizio again!
p.s. Interested in joining Team Bel Inizio in running the 10K? There are plenty of perks for joining including fun, a Bel-Inizio t-shirt, and probably food! Email me for details Theresa.Strong@Bel-Inizio.org.
