Run for a Reason

RFAR 2020 FB Cover

We are thrilled to participate in Chevron Houston Marathon’s Run for a Reason campaign for a 7th year! Individuals may walk, jog, or run We Are Houston 5K, Aramco, Houston Half Marathon, or the Chevron Houston Marathon on behalf of Dress for Success Houston raising both funds and awareness for the mission of our cause.

Since 2013, Team DFSH’s committed members have raised more than $460,000 for the mission of DFSH!

Join a winning team and commit to raising a minimum of $625* for Dress for Success Houston to secure a guaranteed entry in the 2020 Chevron Houston Marathon or Aramco Houston Half Marathon on January 19, 2020. Members of our team will be invited to special events including three boot camps, the Team DFSH Kickoff Party, and Brunch Bash plus receive a Team DFSH t-shirt.

*Note: the fundraising goal has increased due to charities covering race entry fees. $35 for the 5K, $125 for the half, and $140 for the full marathon.

Want to participate but not a runner? Walk the We Are Houston 5K on January 18, 2020! Team DFSH 5K participants commit to raising $250 and enjoy many of the same benefits as the full and half marathon team!

All Team DFSH members receive complimentary entry to the Brunch Bash at Picos Restaurant following the We Are Houston 5K plus a discounted guest ticket at $15.
