The Houston Marathon Committee announced that it will not have an in-person event in 2021. While disappointing for runners, it is also disappointing for the people who are served by the fundraisers and HEROs who raise money for the Houston Food Bank through the Run for a Reason program.
The Running For Food Team Challenge involves three steps:
