TRAFIGURA RUN FOR THE HOUSE

New header for itsyourrace homepage

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Friday, December 2, 2016

 

The Trafigura Run for the House USATF Certified 10K/5K benefiting Ronald McDonald House Houston scheduled for Saturday, December 3, 2016 has been officially cancelled due to threats of severe weather and thunderstorms throughout the Houston area. At the recommendation of Fastlane Services, our race direction and traffic control company, along with the City of Houston Mayor’s Office of Special Events, we determined that the threats posed a significant risk to the safety of our families, participants, sponsors, and volunteers. The City of Houston has already cancelled several other outdoor events scheduled to take place this weekend.

 

At Ronald McDonald House Houston, we keep families close and put them first in all we do. In this spirit, we must be mindful of the safety threats the severe weather poses to the families who attend our event, in addition to the Ronald McDonald House children and families who participate each year.

 

We are tremendously grateful for the support our community has shown for our Run. Each year, our participation grows and we are able to raise essential funds to continue providing a safe and loving home to families with critically ill children. Due to the fundraising nature of this event, Ronald McDonald House Houston is unable to refund event sponsors, race registrants, or donors. However, we encourage you to walk on your treadmills or at the gym this weekend in honor of the families staying at our home away from home.

 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this cancellation, please contact Leslie Bourne, Chief Executive Officer at lbourne@rmhhouston.org or Chief Advancement Officer Lisa Estes at lestes@rmhhouston.org. We appreciate your understanding and wish you and your family a joyous holiday season.
