About Chevron Houston Marathon Run for a Reason

The Chevron Houston Marathon Run for a Reason Program (RFAR) connects the philanthropic community to passionate race participants willing to raise funds and create awareness for meaningful causes. The Houston Marathon Committee (HMC) strives to promote a healthy lifestyle and camaraderie through running.​

​Since its inception in 1995, the RFAR Program has raised over $35M to benefit the various charitable organizations involved with the program. Every year, individuals have the opportunity to select an official Run for a Reason charity partner from a variety of categories that serve constituents based locally, nationally, or internationally.

For the past 10 years our official sponsors Chevron and Aramco have together donated over $956K through the Chevron Houston Marathon Run for a Reason Charity Challenge and the Aramco Employee’s Choice Award.
