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.
The Giving Thanks 5K/10K is about having a fun-filled race experience while giving thanks for all we have. For many years we have held this event in Sugar Land Memorial Park celebrating fall weather and supporting Bel Inizio programs of helping abused women and those in recovery through our programs. while training to complete their first 5K race.
This year the race is wherever you want to run!
