Run For A Reason: Chevron Houston Marathon

THE Y IS PROUD TO BE AN OFFICIAL CHARITY OF THE CHEVRON HOUSTON MARATHON RUN FOR A REASON PROGRAM!

WHAT IS THE RUN FOR A REASON (RFAR) PROGRAM?

The Run For a Reason program allows YMCA supporters to guarantee their registration for the We are Houston 5K, the Chevron Marathon and the Half Marathon through committing to fundraise for the YMCA. The Half Marathon is currently sold out and the only way to register is through fundraising for a nonprofit.

But if you’re not a runner and would still like to support the Y, don’t worry! You can still create a profile for yourself or for a group of people who want to fundraise to support the Y’s cause of strengthening our community.

WHY SHOULD I SUPPORT THE Y?

The Y has been an integral part of Houston for more than 130 years. In communities large and small, from Huntsville to Galveston, and everywhere in between, the YMCA is at the heart of the community. We thrive because of our supporters, partners and donors. And when we thrive, our community thrives.

The Y was there in the beginning when Harvey hit Houston and we will continue to make our community stronger through our partnerships, services, programs, facilities and staff.

Your support to our cause as a fundraiser or donor makes a true impact, allowing us to help those who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford to participate in Y programs. Together we are able to build a solid foundation for every life we touch, making a positive, lifelong impact in our community.

WHEN IS THE CHEVRON HOUSTON MARATHON?

The 2019 Chevron Houston Marathon will be held on Sunday, January 20.

WHAT IS THE DEADLINE TO FUNDRAISE?

For runners, the fundraising deadline to secure their spot is December 1. For all other fundraisers not running, the deadline is December 31.
