Thanks to everybody who joined us at our Second Annual Christmas in July 5K + Kids K on Saturday, July 8th in Downtown Houston. The event started and ended in front of The Salvation Army’s Area Command, located at 1500 Austin St.
The 5K began at 7 a.m., where Justin Stapleton, Meteorologist with KPRC Channel 2, served as our Master of Ceremonies. Major Kent Davis, Area Commander for The Salvation Army, also thanked all the runners before the race for participating. The Kids K began at 9 a.m. All race participants received a race bib, a festive tee, a finisher’s medal, and entry into the post-race party.
Proceeds from today’s run will benefit the programs and services offered year-round at The Salvation Army of Greater Houston, which include four homeless shelters, six corps community centers, two social services offices, two senior affordable living apartment complexes, a college preparatory program, emergency disaster services, and more.
