Texas Children’s Hospital fun run coming May 4

March 26, 2019

More than 1,500 residents of The Woodlands will ring in the summer at the third annual Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands Family Fun Run on May 4.

“It’s really a way to celebrate with the community and encourage families to get together,” said Jenn Jacome, the hospital’s assistant public relations director.

The event includes 1K course and a family fun zone presented by H-E-B, with refreshments, interactive activities, vendors and special guests. Registration is open until April 22 and is $8 per person.

The first one in The Woodlands was held to celebrate the grand opening of Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands two years ago. Every year, Jacome said, the hospital’s Woodlands campus, as well as its west Houston one, put on a community fun run event in an effort to bring the community closer together.

“The kids just love it,” Jacome said.

The third annual Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands Family Fun Run will be held at the hospital at 17600 Interstate-45 S. on May 4 at 9 a.m. The deadline to register is 5 p.m. on April 22.

“It’s a fun thing to do on the weekend,” Jacome said. “You’re always looking for something fun to do with your family.”
