About Run for the House
Sponsored by the global philanthropists of the Trafigura Foundation, the Trafigura Run for the House is an inclusive 5K/10K event for competitive runners, families, and four-paws, with proceeds benefiting Ronald McDonald House Houston. RMHH 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 top finisher awards 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 participants receive a finisher medal and event t-shirt. Stick around after the race for the Mogie After Party and enjoy free food, beverages, games, and a visit from Santa! It’s family-friendly fun for all ages!
