Chevron Houston Marathon

Run for our Seniors! 

 

Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels is excited to be one of the official charities for Chevron Houston Marathon Run for a Reason! 

The Run for a Reason program offers guaranteed ways to enter the Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon held in Houston on Sunday, January 14, 2018 and we have race entries for both the half and full marathon. Donations raised through this event will continue to help our seniors remain independent by enhancing their quality of life. Our goal is to ensure hunger relief through proper nutrition and adequate caloric intake for those ages 60 and over, keeping them healthy and happy.
