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, which means beautiful beginning in Italian, helps disadvantaged women develop self-esteem and life skills through fitness and nutrition. Our women, victims of abuse, sex trafficking, and in recovery complete an 8-week training with their own capstone 5K run! Bel Inizio is helping them grow and succeed during this difficult time. All proceeds from this race will support our summer teams at Santa Maria Hostel.
