Corporate Participation Opportunities

Home/Run for a Reason/Corporate Participation Opportunities

Since its inception in 1995, more than $30 million has been raised to benefit local Houston charities through the Run for a Reason Program. This incredible feat has been aided by the generosity and sense of social responsibility that many corporations in our city feel to give back to the communities in which they do business. When you and your corporation become a part of this truly inspiring program, in addition to supporting one of the 65 official charity partners, you’ll also be aligned with the largest single day sporting event in the city of Houston and the nation’s premier winter marathon. With 30,000 participants, 7,000 volunteers, 300,000 spectators and over half a million television viewers, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to participate as a Corporate Running Team or Sidewalk Squad at the 2019 Chevron Houston Marathon, Aramco Houston Half Marathon and We Are Houston 5K presented by Aramco and Chevron.

Corporate Running Team

The Corporate Running Team Program is an active way to encourage wellness, team building and charitable giving within your organization and alongside other likeminded companies. By participating in the event and fundraising on behalf of an official Run for a Reason charity partner, a group of three or more team members will receive amenities that will enhance their race weekend experience.
