Saturday, June 29, was one of the hottest days on record in Houston – but that didn’t stop the ASC team from turning out full force for the “Run for a Reason” Marathon Kickoff Party at Memorial Park.
During the three-hour morning event, more than 20 volunteers made and distributed snow-cones from the Aramco Services booth, distributed T-shirts at the main Marathon tent, and helped build excitement for 2014 Marathon Weekend.
The kickoff celebrates runners and the local charities that benefit from Marathon Weekend. By signing up to “Run for a Reason,” participants can direct friends and family members to donate through the Marathon organizing committee to community organizations. Last year, runners raised $2.2 million for charity.
Marathon Weekend includes the Aramco Houston Half Marathon, the Chevron Marathon and the ABB 5K. It will be held January 18-19, 2014.
