TWH Selected for 2014-2015 Run for a Reason Charity Program

Run for a Reason May 14

The Women’s Home is honored to have been selected as an official charity for the 2014-2015 Chevron Houston Marathon Run for a Reason Program. Early registration for the full and half marathons opened on May 6th – the general lottery will open on June 4th.

Skip the lottery and receive a Guaranteed Entry! The Run for a Reason program offers guaranteed ways to enter the Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon without having to enter the lottery. Starting June 4, The Women’s Home will have a limited number of guaranteed charity entries that will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.


Charity Entry Options include:


“HERO” charity entries

This option enables runners to make an upfront, tax-deductible donation of at least $350 to The Women’s Home, plus the cost of registration ($125 for the marathon, $115 for the half marathon) , to secure a guaranteed race entry. We’ll have 15 of these spots available for sale on June 4th. Individuals can also purchase a guaranteed entry for someone else through the “Gift a HERO” program.


“Fundraising for Registration” charity entries

This option gives runners an opportunity to fundraise for The Women’s Home and receive a guaranteed race entry. We’ll have at least 5 of these spots available with a set fundraising minimum of $500.
