Trafigura Run for the House
Sponsored by the global philanthropists of Trafigura, the Run for the House is an inclusive 5K–10K event for competitive runners, families, and four-paws, with all proceeds benefiting Ronald McDonald House Houston, which provides a home away from home for children being treated in Texas Medical Center Hospitals. Embarking from Sam Houston Park, the race splits into two events. A challenging and competitive 10K run tests the mettle of athletes vying for medals while the 5K run/family walk lets participants take a leisurely approach and even permits canine companions, with Ronald McDonald House Houston's resident pooch, Mogie, leading the pack. All finishers are invited to take part in the post-race celebration.
